Scripps Health has developed the COVID Recovery Program to address the lingering complications endured by many patients previously infected with the COVID-19 virus. The program is designed for Scripps patients recovering from a hospital stay, as well as those who did not require hospitalization but are recovering from COVID. The goal of the program is to help patients on the road to recovery and ensure that post-COVID patients get proper, compassionate medical treatment customized to their needs.
The Scripps COVID Recovery Program team consists of primary care providers, specialty physicians, physical therapists, social workers, occupational therapists, RN care navigators and behavioral health experts (external referral). The team will perform a detailed evaluation and provide necessary referrals to specialists who can further address each patient’s symptoms. The RN care navigators will assist with scheduling, coordinating and managing the plan of care.
