About Us

About Us

At St. Luke’s University Health Network, we value seniors and are determined to provide our older patients safe, high quality care in a gentle, kind and respectful manner. We also appreciate that caring for an older adult is challenging. Whether you’re a spouse with your own healthcare needs, or an adult child who has stepped up to care for a parent, we’re here to guide and support you.

In the Hospital

From our emergency rooms to nursing units, we strive to comfort older patients. We educate our staff to address the complex needs of seniors through a program called Nurses Improving Care for Health Care Elders (NICHE). We identify older adults at risk and provide enhanced services to reduce potential complications and make their stays more comfortable with specialized initiatives including Acute Care of the Elderly (ACE) and our Senior Surgical Services program.

Outpatient Services

We offer a wide range of healthcare services to help seniors remain as healthy and independent as possible. The geriatric specialists at St. Luke’s Senior Care Associates provide comprehensive physical, cognitive and social evaluations at our Center for Positive Aging. Our geriatricians then partner with social workers and caregivers to develop customized care plans for each of our patients. In addition, our care team provides information about helpful community resources and offers a variety of services to support the caregiver.
