Patient Resource Center

After your visit to the emergency room, it’s often recommended that you follow up with your primary care provider to ensure that your treatment and healing process stay on track. If you don’t have a primary care provider, we’ll connect you with our Patient Resource Center located in our Emergency Department at Saint Joseph Jessamine. To contact the Patient Resource Center for assistance, please call 859.313.2772.

Open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., the Patient Resource Center will work closely with you and your family to assist in making this vital connection between patient and primary care provider. A member of our team will:

  • Assist in finding a primary care provider or family doctor based on your unique needs
  • Schedule needed follow-up appointments determined at discharge
  • Help with the completion of new patient paperwork for your first follow up appointment
