Patient Care

We strive to provide the highest quality of care for older adults in order to improve their health, independence and quality of life.

Our geriatricians provide care at our South and University campuses, as well as within specialty inpatient programs. South Campus is the only NICHE-certified (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders) hospital in Arizona offering a staff specially trained in hospitalized older adults. We are working with the Department of Emergency Medicine to build a senior emergency room to meet the unique needs of older adults and an Acute Care of Elders unit at South Campus to reduce the complications of hospitalization for frail elders and promote safe discharge home.
