Geriatric health care

Sometimes getting older can come with new health challenges that have never been experienced before.

Our Geriatric Services team specialized treatment on the leading edge of geriatric care.

From the design of the floor to the open visiting policy for family members, the specialized care in the Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Unit can help speed a elderly patient's return to activities. Methodist Hospital has been designated a NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Health System Elders) site by the John A. Hartford Foundation Institute for Geriatric Nursing.
