Geriatrics Department

The Geriatrics Department concentrates on diagnosing, starting the necessary treatment and carrying out modified rehabilitation. This will involve a multidisciplinary approach.

We provide high-quality care to prepare you as well as possible for life after your discharge.

The necessary ongoing care will be determined in consultation with yourself, your GP, other care providers and your family.

Intermediate and long-term care wards

The Geriatrics Department consists of three units: D601, D602 and D603. The Nursing Team can be contacted 24/7.

Elderly patients may however also end up on other wards in our hospital. In that case, they will be followed up by an interdisciplinary team from the Internal Liaison Department. This team consists of a geriatrician, a geriatric nurse, a speech therapist, an occupational therapist, a dietitian and a psychologist. Their advisory role helps to optimise the care that senior care recipients receive.
