SALISBURY, N.C. — Novant Health is turning to Rowan County to help provide transitional care for patients.

Starting Aug. 1, Rowan County Emergency Medical Services will visit some patients following a hospital discharge. Paramedics will monitor high-risk patients’ conditions and address medical problems before another hospital visit is required, according to a news release. The program is specifically intended for patients with congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the release stated.

The partnership is funded through a $251,855 grant over two years provided through The Duke Endowment to Novant Health Rowan Medical Center.
