Hello, my name is Adam and I work as a care partner to support patients transitioning from hospital to home by offering them assistance with medications, follow up appointments, and therapies.

Arielle Kniffen, MSW, LCSW

James W 0 155

The first thing people usually ask me is if I was named after Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Ariel; the answer is no. When I was born my mother was on a Shakespeare kick and named me after a sprite from Shakespeare’s play The Tempest. I am a nature enthusiast and I love hiking, camping, kayaking and exploring. One of my biggest travel dreams is to explore the Amazon River with my husband.

Brittany Wooten, LPN

I am a patient advocate and reach out to patients that have been discharged from the emergency department and/or the hospital. I provide health education, involving their medications and answer any questions they may have, in regards to the recent visit. I also will reach out to any providers that need to urgently reach the patient, along with scheduling. My main objective in this job/position is to care for my patients and not let any concerns or questions go unanswered.
