Going Home

While we strive to make your stay at St. Vincent's HealthCare as pleasant as possible, we know you'll be eager to go home. Prior to your discharge, your doctor will give you any needed instructions regarding your home care. Our nursing staff will review these instructions with you before you are discharged to make sure you understand any changes to your medications or routine. Our care managers and social workers will help you make any arrangements necessary, such as setting up home health services or ordering medical equipment.

Check out time at St. Vincent’s is 11 a.m. Our associates will be working together to prepare your discharge orders so you can leave before check-out time. Please plan to have clothing and transportation available for discharge. A staff member or volunteer will escort you by wheelchair to the Patient Pick-Up area.

If you have questions about your discharge, please ask your nurse.
