The Acute Care for Elders unit, located at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, is our specially designed hospital unit for older adults. It is the first such unit in the Philadelphia area and is a leader in providing specialized, comprehensive and interdisciplinary care for older adults. Our experienced team of geriatric medicine physicians, nurses, therapists and social workers provide cutting-edge geriatric care and create a comfortable environment dedicated to the unique needs of elderly patients and their families.
We are experienced in treating problems unique to older adults and preventing functional loss often associated with hospitalization. The ACE team guides patients through the discharge process to ensure the best post-hospital experience possible.
