The Division of Geriatrics provides medical consultations in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Board certified geriatricians, nurse practitioners, licensed, master’s-prepared social workers, and registered nurses function in an interdisciplinary team. This innovative approach to geriatric medicine is growing and dynamic, and the team provides patient-focused and family-focused care. Prisma Health is developing other programs to meet the special needs of our aging population. The Center for Success in Aging is the headquarters for all activities of the Division of Geriatrics.
Internal medicine residents train with the division, and team members are involved in research and education with partners including Clemson and USC School of Medicine and Public Health.
