Mercy Health Physicians St. Ann’s is working with Mercy Health Geriatrics, a team of Primary Care Physicians, Internists, Geriatric Specialists and support staff that works in tandem to prevent and treat diseases and disabilities. They also promote healthy living to our elderly patients who reside in skilled nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or those who remain at home under the supervision of caregivers. Mercy Health Physicians provide a Medical Director and other physician and Nurse Practitioner coverage at St. Ann’s and through ongoing “on-call” services.
The comprehensive team provides seamless care to patients by sharing on-call responsibilities 24-hours a day, so there is never a time when your needs aren’t met. And, should specialty needs arise, our physicians coordinate your care among our network of subspecialists, including Orthopedists, Endocrinologists and Neurologists, as well as onsite lab and radiology services at many of our locations.
Geriatrics is a branch of primary care dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of:
- Medical Consultations (Home Assessments Available)
- Advanced Disease Management
- Coordinating Sub-Specialty Care
- Infectious Diseases
- Personalized Health Maintenance Plans
- Management of Chronic Illness
- Mental Health Concerns
- Routine Preventive Care
For patients at St. Ann’s, calls and faxes should be made to St. Ann’s, as this is where the medical records are kept.
