Team 5

Medical Team 5 was initiated in July 2006, with a purpose of caring for hospitalized medical patients who have complex psychosocial issues and who would benefit from a consistent multidisciplinary team approach to care. This dedicated nurse practitioner led team consists of hospitalist physicians, nurse practitioners and a social worker. The philosophy of the team is to treat each patient and family with dignity and respect, while providing intensive psychosocial and medical care. Team 5 strives to increase positive patient outcomes by facilitating the hospital experience of the patient, providing early interventions and enhancing discharge planning. The team provides continuity of care by caring for the patient on subsequent admissions, if medically appropriate, and by collaborating with all hospital services, as well as community agencies.
