Geriatric Medicine SA – Outstanding Care for Older Patients

We are locally trained Geriatricians, specialising in the comprehensive care of older medical and surgical patients.

We provide care at these locations:

  • Calvary Wakefield Hospital: peri-operative care and inpatient consultation
  • Calvary Rehabilitation Hospital: rehabilitation admissions and outpatient clinic
  • Calvary North Adelaide Hospital: inpatient consultations
  • McIntyre Medical Centre: outpatient clinic
  • Limited Residential Care Facilities

For patients requiring surgery, we are committed to working collaboratively with surgeons to ensure that the best possible outcomes can be achieved. Our process involves a comprehensive initial assessment with ongoing care throughout the hospital stay. For patients requiring transfer to Calvary Rehabilitation Hospital, we provide ongoing care throughout the rehabilitation admission. We will work closely with patients, their families and carers and hospital staff to assist with planning for discharge and future care needs.
