Take the 7-Day Pledge

Take the 7-Day Pledge

Make a commitment to better health in your community

Access to primary care is critical to managing and improving patient health, especially in the week following a hospital visit. The 7-Day Pledge is a citywide campaign to ensure all hospitalized patients in Camden meet with their primary care provider within 7 days of discharge.

If you or someone you know has just been discharged from the hospital, give them a call. Encourage them to schedule appointment with their primary care doctor within 7 days of hospital discharge.

The Pledge

• I believe that access to high quality primary care is critical to managing and improving the health of my community.
• I acknowledge that seeing my doctor within 7 days can reduce the likelihood of being readmitted to the hospital.
• I pledge to do everything in my power to ensure that I, and those in my community, schedule a primary care appointment within 7 days of hospital discharge.
• I promise to educate my community about the importance of primary care follow-up appointments.
