The Division of Geriatrics is conducted jointly by NewYork-Presbyterian Queens and the Silvercrest Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation. It is staffed by both full-time and part-time attending specialized physicians.
NewYork-Presbyterian Queens established the Acute Care for Elders Unit (ACE Unit) to provide consultation and assessment for older patients who have multiple medical and psychosocial problems.
At Silvercrest, the division provides medical care to the residents in long-term care, rehabilitation, ventilator-dependent care, end-of-life care and Alzheimer's disease units.
