Patient Care

Exceptional, Comprehensive Care for Seniors

Patient service has long been a hallmark of the Duke Division of Geriatrics, and programs continue to expand to meet the increasing needs of our aging population.

Duke is ranked #5 in the country for geriatrics by U.S. News & World Report.

The Duke Geriatrics team works closely with our patients' primary care physicians to provide and coordinate exceptional, comprehensive care for seniors suffering from a wide variety of health and wellness issues.

We offer inpatient consult services throughout Duke Hospital for adults over the age of 65 years.

Our cross-disciplinary approach to patient care gives our geriatric patients access to all that Duke has to offer — from experienced specialists in every medical specialty to the most advanced medical technology available to a number of active family support programs.
