Norton Community Medical Associates - Geriatrics
An innovative approach to providing primary care to nursing home patients
Due to the current nursing home regulatory environment, many physicians discontinue providing care to patients when admitted to nursing homes. Norton Community Medical Associates - Geriatrics addresses the gap in care that this can create.
Norton Community Medical Associates - Geriatrics is a physician practice dedicated to providing cost-effective, quality care to patients in nursing homes. Our physicians work together with administrators and staff, as well as the patient's primary care physician and family to meet the patient's health-related needs are met - including those mandated by federal and state regulations.
Our innovative on-site approach enables us to be flexible and more responsive to our patients. We make visits during normal work hours and are on call after-hours. There is no cost to the nursing home for our services, and we handle our own billing.
We return patients to their primary care physicians' care if hospitalized or discharged.
