Internal Medicine

The Department of Acute Geriatric Internal Medicine cares for the elderly who suffer from acute medical conditions, such as pneumonia, vascular diseases, infections and respiratory illness.

Following the professional medical treatment given at the department, patients who are capable of independent functioning are frequently transferred to the Department of Physical Rehabilitation, to enhance their independence to a level at which they could be discharged to return to their homes.

Patients who are in need of extended medical care are referred to the Long-Term Nursing Department or the Department of Complex Nursing, depending on their medical needs.
