Queensway Carleton Hospital’s medical services program is one of our cornerstone programs. Our 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 relating to a combination of problems with heart, lungs, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Many of the patients who are taken care of in our inpatient units are referred via consultations by various services throughout the Hospital, with the most common being internal medicine, surgery, or requested though your family physician’s office.
Outpatient services are provided through the Medical Day Unit. Typically, medical patients have multiple co-morbidities and often have more than one chronic disease. Queensway Carleton Hospital uses best practice models for managing chronic diseases. These models require extensive coordination and integration of care with community and primary care stakeholders.
At QCH, our medical services program consists of 11 different subspecialties or divisions:
- Infectious Diseases
- Internal Medicine
- Palliative Care
