Center for Geriatric Medicine

UH Center for Geriatric Medicine is devoted to the health and well-being of today’s older adults.

The UH/VA Geriatric Medicine Program is directed by the Center for Geriatric Medicine at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and is a collaborative program sponsored by the Case/UH departments of Family Medicine and Internal Medicine. We involve health professionals from a variety of other disciplines including nursing, social sciences, dentistry, public health, environmental sciences, and education.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) in April 2008 noted that “the nation faces an impending health care crisis as the number of older patients with more complex health needs increasingly outpaces the number of health care providers with the knowledge and skills to adequately care for them. Right now the nation is not prepared to meet the social and health care needs of elderly people.”
