Redefining Healthcare in Chelsea – Hospital Expertise in the Heart of Your Home

Chelsea residents facing serious illness or needing follow-up after a hospital stay now have an extraordinary option: Care2U. This revolutionary service offers a comprehensive solution that brings hospital-level treatment directly to their homes. Patients can now receive high-intensity, physician-led medical care in the comfort and convenience of their own homes, preventing unnecessary ER visits and avoidable hospitalizations. Care2U's innovative care model provides an optimized site of care to both reduce costs and improve patient outcomes – a revolutionary take on modern healthcare. 


24/7 Access: A Lifeline When Time Matters

When patients need more than an office visit but less than a full hospital stay, Care2U's expert Hospitalists bring all that and more to their doorsteps. Patients get 24/7 access to Care2U's command center, which is staffed by experienced emergency medicine physicians ready to deploy mobile teams or initiate telemedicine consultations within a 2-hour response time – bringing medical experience and expertise to the bedside, not the waiting room.


Hospital Care at Home

For patients who meet the criteria for observation or at-home inpatient admission, Care2U's highly skilled Hospitalists provide a variety of acute care services. These are designed to replicate the clinical capabilities of a hospital setting right where it is needed most – in the patients' homes. A multidisciplinary team provides comprehensive home care medical treatment plans encompassing:

  • Rapid in-home evaluation by an advanced practice provider
  • STAT lab testing with results available bedside
  • Diagnostic imaging (X-ray, ultrasound, echocardiogram)
  • Cardiac monitoring (EKGs)
  • IV medication administration and IV fluid therapy
  • Home oxygen/respiratory therapy and nebulizer treatments
  • Remote patient monitoring with continuous oversight
  • Home health aide support for daily living
  • Daily medical summaries provided to PCP or specialist


Seamless Care From Hospital to Home  

Care2U is an extension of an office or hospital – not a replacement. The Care2U team prioritizes close integration with the patient’s primary care provider or specialist to optimize the patient’s treatment. This occurs thanks to the team’s dedication to:

  • Detailed intake reports reviewing presenting symptoms and medical history
  • Periodic clinical status updates with in-home exam findings and treatment plans
  • Real-time access to Care2U's physicians for collaborative case management
  • Coordinated post-acute care handoff planning with home health or facility providers  


Beyond Medicine: The Care Cost Advantages

In addition to the clinical benefits of providing advanced medical home care services, Care2U's model also helps reduce overall healthcare costs through:

  • Fewer non-critical ER visits and preventable hospital stays mean lower costs for both patients and the system.
  • Avoiding exposure to hospital-based infections keeps patients healthier.
  • Streamlined discharge and smoother transitions back to your care benefit everyone.
  • Home care can be significantly less expensive for patients than a hospital stay.


Their Healing. They’re Home.

Perhaps most importantly, hospital care at home enables qualified patients to heal in the comfortable, low-stress environment of their own homes surrounded by family - an experience that has been proven to foster better outcomes. Care2U's comprehensive services are covered by most major payors and foster reduced patient cost-sharing compared to traditional inpatient stays.
