Geriatric Medicine

Geriatricians are specifically trained to care for the complex needs of older adults in order to reduce hospital readmission rates.

The geriatric medicine department of Baylor Scott & White Clinics in Central Texas offers primary and specialized post-acute care for rehabilitation to skilled nursing facilities, assisted livings and the community at large. We work within the community to promote health and wellness by conducting a comprehensive geriatric assessment. Our efforts have led to better outcomes for our patients including reduction in pressure sores, use of antipsychotic medications, and hospital readmission rates.
