Kitsap County Cross Continuum Care Transitions Project (KC4TP)
Healthcare organizations throughout Kitsap County have joined together to better serve the needs of patients in our community. The Kitsap County Cross Continuum Care Transitions Project, or KC4TP, is a collaboration of Harrison Medical Center, skilled nursing facilities, hospice and palliative care, specialty and primary care clinics, and other community healthcare support agencies.
