Welcome to Bon Secours Medical Group Geriatrics

The Bon Secours Medical Group Geriatric interdisciplinary teams consist of practitioners from different disciplines who provide coordinated, integrated care with collectively set goals and shared resources and responsibilities.

Not all elderly patients need a formal geriatric interdisciplinary team. However, if patients have complex medical, psychologic, and social needs, such teams are more effective in assessing patient needs and creating an effective care plan than are practitioners working alone. If interdisciplinary care is not available, an alternative is management by a geriatrician or a primary care physician with experience and interest in geriatric medicine. Interdisciplinary teams aim to ensure the following:

  • Patients move safely and easily from one care setting to another and from one practitioner to another
  • The most qualified practitioner provides care for each problem
  • Care is not duplicated
