(Kansas City, MO– June 5th, 2017) – St. Joseph Medical Center officially opens Sister Margaret’s Senior Clinic in Kansas City, led by a dedicated team of experts with specialized training and experience in geriatric healthcare.

Patients 65 years and older have unique medical needs, and the staff at our Senior Clinic not only recognizes those needs, but is focused on proactively protecting and preserving quality of life for our region’s older patients. Just as pediatricians specialize in the care of children, geriatricians are physicians who specialize in the care of older adults. Our physicians have two additional years of training in geriatrics.

“We are committed to bringing the best healthcare to seniors, to help ease the burden of illness on patients and their family,” said Kirk Sloan, MD, Chief Medical Officer. “The new senior clinic will offer patients coordinated medical services, all in one convenient setting.”

Our Senior Clinic specializes in the comprehensive, multidisciplinary geriatric assessment and treatment of older adults, and in dealing with multiple medical problems, chronic illnesses and even social issues that older patients often face. We work to optimize quality of life and functional ability for our patients.

“We believe it is critical to work as a team with the patient and family as key members of that team,” said Kirk Sloan, MD, Chief Medical Officer. “We also work closely with other health care professionals and organizations, including other physicians, therapists, home care agencies, pain clinics, Hospice and support groups to meet the specific needs of each of our patients.”

Patients interested in receiving Senior Comfort Services at St. Joseph Medical Center should call 816-943-4541 or visit stjosephkc.com to schedule an appointment or take a tour of the facility. Patients may also speak with their doctor about the new services offered at St. Joseph’s.
