Weill Cornell Medicine Physicians provide an extensive network of resources for the comprehensive care of older adults, bringing together a wide range of services to provide easy access to high-quality care. Weill Cornell Medicine gerontologists coordinate closely with physicians in other practices such as neurology and psychiatry as needed.
Physicians and nurse practitioners at the Irving Sherwood Wright Center on Aging provides both primary care and consultation in a multidisciplinary setting. The Center also runs Housecalls, an innovative program that brings physicians to the homes of elderly patients in the neighborhood of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and provides care for those unable to visit the doctor.
Additionally, in the summer of 1999, Weill Cornell Medical College formed the Center for Aging Research and Clinical Care, which integrates all geriatrics activities of the institution. The center is administered by NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell's Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology, and its mission is to improve the quality-of-life of older adults through an integration of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell's Aging Programs in research, clinical care, and teaching.
