General Internal Medicine / Complex Medical Care
Our medical staff specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of diseases involving all organ systems, and are especially skilled in the management of patients with complex medical needs.
In our general internal medicine unit, treatment is provided through the expertise of the medical team and the multidisciplinary team. The team is comprised of a staff physician, the team resident and the team interns. Patients are seen on a daily basis by one of the team members. The team member reports to the staff physician.
Prior to discharge, members of your health care team will discuss discharge plans with you and provide information on follow-up appointments, medications and other instructions. If you are unable to leave the hospital when you are discharged, you will be able to wait comfortably for your ride in our post-discharge lounge.
