Queensway Carleton Hospital’s inpatient medical units provide coordinated multi-disciplinary care to patients admitted through the Emergency Department – seeing more than 5,100 admissions per year. Patients have a wide variety of diagnoses, the most common ones relate to combinations of problems with heart, lungs, high blood pressure and diabetes. Outpatient services are provided through the Medical Day Care Unit. Typically, medical patients have multiple co-morbidities and often have more than one chronic disease. Queensway Carleton uses best practice models for managing chronic diseases. These models will require extensive coordination and integration of care with community/primary care stakeholders.
