General Internal Medicine focuses on the care of adults age 18 and over. We offer personalized primary care services in preventive health care and a broad range of health problems, encouraging our patients to develop a long-term relationship with a personal physician.
Geriatrics medicine focuses on achieving the highest possible level of physical and functional well-being for older adults, preventing disability and disease, and promoting independence as aging occurs.
Palliative Care is an interdisciplinary approach to the care of persons with illnesses no longer responsive to curative treatment. The goal of palliative care is to achieve and sustain the highest quality of life for patients and their families by providing aggressive pain and symptom management, together with psychosocial and spiritual support to lessen suffering.
The Hospitalists admit and manage medically complex patients at both facilities, provide medical consultation to surgical patients in both the inpatient and outpatient setting, and are heavily involved in resident and student education.
