The Geriatric Health Assessment Clinic offers a team approach to the comprehensive evaluation and treatment of older adults. Team members include nurses, pharmacists, physicians, and social workers who specialize in geriatric care with a focus on health promotion along with prevention and treatment of disease as well as disability in later life. In 2019-20 our geriatric care was cited as high performing by U.S. News & World Report.
