Now Open: Geriatric Emergency Department

E-mail Print PDF
Our Geriatric ED is designed especially for patients 65 years of age and older.

The American College of Emergency Physicians determined the importance of geriatric-specific emergency care. St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center is the first hospital in the region to provide a dedicated emergency department for older patients, featuring a 14-bed treatment area with thicker mattresses, natural lighting throughout much of the common areas, and reduced chaos and noise.

 

Our staff is trained in geriatric emergency medicine.

So many people age 65 and older suffer from chronic diseases and other health issues unique to aging. Our team is trained to address these acute medical problems, and our new clinical protocols and pathways provide geriatric-tailored medical care. The team includes physicians, nurses, social workers, pharmacists and toxicologists, as well as occupational and physical therapists.
