A Transition Care Clinic (TCC) is a specialized treatment clinic for people with chronic diseases such as congestive heart failure. An important resource for patients with chronic disease, the TCC is designed to help prevent readmissions after a recent hospital discharge or return visits to the Emergency Department. Although patients will be seen in the TCC for follow-up appointments following a hospital stay, the clinic does not replace the regular primary care provider. It is a bridge from the hospital stay until the patient stabilizes in the home environment.
