As we age, it is not uncommon for special healthcare needs to make medical care more complicated.
We understand that. Our team of fellowship-trained and board-certified geriatricians specialize in meeting the healthcare needs and treatment preferences of older adults. You can take confidence in our comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach that draws on caring professionals specially trained in nursing, social work, clinical pharmacy, and physical and occupational therapy.
You choose what is best for you
You can choose the level of care and type of setting that best meets your needs. A number of our fellowship-trained and board-certified physicians specialize in geriatric-specific syndromes, such as dementia, delirium, falls, incontinence, palliative care and frailty. We offer outpatient services in primary care or consultative clinics in the Medical Pavilion. We also work with patients in the memory clinic at the Clinical Research Center, in our skilled nursing, assisted living and long-term care facilities, and in our patients’ homes or other nursing facilities.
We believe patients come first
We start by putting patients first and it shows. Our program ranked No. 34 among the nation’s best in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals 2023-24. Rankings are based on measurable achievements in quality, safety, nursing excellence and more.
