The Division of General Internal Medicine offers excellent patient care for both inpatients and outpatients. Among our locations and services:
- Preventative medicine
- Chronic disease management
- Comprehensive geriatric assessment
- Pre-operative assessment
- Consultations and second opinions
- Primary Care for those 80 years of age and older.
Our hospitalists specialize in high quality and efficient care of patients requiring inpatient medical care. Hospitalist faculty manage many busy non-teaching and teaching inpatient general medical services at Parkland Memorial Hospital, St. Paul University Hospital, and Zale Lipshy University Hospital. They also help staff the medical consult and perioperative assessment services at each site. Working in close collaboration, the team of hospitalist physicians, mid-level providers, and other allied health professionals provide round-the-clock, in-house, bedside care to patients throughout their stay.
The Palliative and Supportive Care team at UT Southwestern provides specialized care for patients and families living with serious and terminal illness. We currently have consulting services for inpatients at St. Paul University Hospital, Zale Lipshy University Hospital, and Parkland. In addition, we have an outpatient clinic for patients at Parkland and an ever expanding presence at the Simmons Cancer Center (currently operating in the lung cancer and neuro-oncology clinics).
Our goal is to help our patients live with the best quality of life possible by providing symptom management and psychosocial support.
