Quality Health Care for Older Adults

What Is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?

This is a primary care outpatient clinic where you will receive quality, innovative health care from a team of experts who work to ensure that:

  • your needs are met,
  • your voice is heard, and
  • your health and well-being are at the center of your care.

Average Age for Geriatric Patients

Geriatric care serves the health and wellness needs of adults at the age of 65 years and older. Anyone in this age range can receive primary care in our patient-centered medical home.

However, our team is best suited to provide care for people who are:

  • 85 years and older,
  • have functional or cognitive limitations, or
  • multiple, chronic medical conditions.

Our Geriatricians

Convenient Blood Tests & Labs Directly In Your Exam Room

When you’re not feeling well, we know it can be hard to walk to another building or even another floor to get blood work and labs. If you need blood tests or other lab work, you can get these done during your appointment, directly inside your exam room. 

Your provider will come into your exam room and draw your blood or perform the lab you need. Your doctor will then analyze your labs and come back into your exam room to discuss your results so you don’t need to walk to another room in the building.

On-Site Pharmacists, Social Workers, & Care Managers

To stay healthy, you need care for your physical, emotional, and mental health. But getting all these services at one clinic is hard. At most health systems, patients need a referral and must go to different locations to see a pharmacist, a clinical nurse, or a social worker.

We provide these specialists directly in our clinic so you can get comprehensive care in one place, during one visit. Our team includes:

  • a social worker,
  • a clinical pharmacist,
  • a care manager, and
  • clinical nurses.

Our providers work with patients to develop individualized care plans and a one-on-one relationship in a team setting.

Make an Appointment

To make an appointment with us, you do not need a referral from your physician. However, you should check with Medicare to make sure this appointment will be covered.

Please call us at (435)-843-3000 or schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you.
