Consider the Challenges of Transitional Housing

Posted by Karyl Walker on Tue, Nov 19, 2019 @ 07:57 AM

Reliable housing has become such a critical need in the United States that a growing number of hospital systems have taken up the cause. Providers from Sacramento to St. Louis to Cleveland are working hard to secure permanent and transitional housing for patients who have nowhere to go after inpatient visits—even if it means building apartments on the hospital campus itself.
