Geriatrics

MedStar Health geriatric care honors the dignity and well-being of the elderly, by promoting health, preventing disease, and managing chronic conditions.

That’s why we provide comprehensive, collaborative care from a staff who is trained to meet the unique needs of senior patients. Aging presents its own set of challenges, and our geriatric physicians and nurses are committed to working with patients, family members, and caregivers to ensure the best possible quality of life and health.

Our expertise spans dementia care and severe chronic illnesses, such as hypertension, diabetes and heart failure. Our geriatric physicians also offer arthritis and hip-fracture services, as well as end-of-life and hospice. Practicing throughout our network of 10 hospitals and numerous outpatient clinics across Maryland and Washington, D.C., MedStar geriatric physicians are as convenient as they are committed.
