Top-Ranked Geriatric Care

U.S. News & World Report ranks the UW Health geriatrics program among the top 50 in the nation. Our holistic approach to both primary and specialty care equally emphasizes prevention, disease management, functional rehabilitation and the end of life.

A Unique Hospital Consult Service

Recognizing that hospitalized older adults often face unique challenges, we created the UW Health Acute Care for Elders service, an interdisciplinary clinical consult team that evaluates older patients’ and families’ unique physical, mental, emotional and social factors to recommend the best approaches to current inpatient care and future needs.

Novel Home-Based Care

In collaboration with UW Health, we launched a multidisciplinary home-based primary care program for qualifying patients. It increases patient access to both primary and palliative care, builds networks of home- and community-based services, improves patient and caregiver quality of life and decreases total costs of care.
