Case Management

For patients with complex health problems such as HIV and other chronic illnesses, Fenway offers comprehensive case management services. Our registered nurses and medical social workers help patients understand and access the many resources available to them.

For chronically ill patients, the primary care nurse assumes the additional role of case manager, assisting and supporting you through the course of your illness. Your RN will help you understand the disease process and the impact it is likely to have on your health and provide the information you need to stay healthy and make sound choices about your health care.

We have staff available to help you cope with the practical and emotional aspects of your care and help you access mental health care. Behavioral health specialists are clinically-licensed therapists with graduate-level education, and can provide supportive counseling and therapy. Medical case managers are also available to help you apply for Medicare or Medicaid and access community-based services, such as financial, housing and legal assistance programs, and pastoral counseling; coordinate and facilitate communication among multiple service providers; and make referrals to various other services.

Research and Clinical Trials

In addition to providing high-quality care for people living with HIV/AIDS, Fenway Health is actively involved in research to develop new ways to treat and control HIV infection. The Fenway Institute is currently recruiting participants for open studies.
