Senior Care

Our providers offer primary care services in a variety of settings. Staff geriatricians, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists provide inpatient, outpatient, and nursing facility care. We treat patients with memory problems, incontinence, gait instability, falls, chronic illness, and complex drug regimens, as well as those who are in need of extended care.

Our Commitment to Racial Justice and the Community.

On behalf of the Department of Medicine

We rise in solidarity with all members of our community who are grieving and fighting against social injustice and structural racism. We want you to know that we are here for you and your families. We will support the cause of racial justice and are also well aware that inequality leads to poorer health care outcomes.

We recognize the strain on our community both emotionally and physically. We continue to provide the best medical care for you. We also understand the fear, mistrust and difficulties you may experience while navigating your healthcare needs, and will work to eliminate these barriers. We are committed to providing safe, accessible, and unbiased healthcare for all who are in need or desire it and we will partner with our community to learn how best to address inequities in effective and meaningful ways. We are here to care for you and share in your wellness. We encourage you to call us with any concerns as well as thoughts on how we can move forward in this necessary journey together. We are here with you, for life.

We offer monthly caregiver support meetings for individuals caring for elderly loved ones and friends. Meetings take place at the Parkside Professional Building, Suite 440.

Hospital-based care

This is a hospital-based clinic owned by Hennepin Healthcare. Many insurance plans pay for health care services provided in a hospital-based clinic differently than those provided in a doctor’s office. Your insurance may require that you meet your annual deductible and/or require that you pay a percentage of the bill rather than just an office visit co-payment. You should check with your insurance company if you have any questions. Read the Frequently asked questions about hospital-based clinics to learn more.
