montefiore hospital Albert Einstein College of Medicine Montefiore Medical Center Bronx NY
Montefiore Medical Center, Moses Campus

Inpatient care for family medicine continuity patients is provided on the Family Medicine Inpatient Unit, a dedicated 34-bed medical/surgical floor on the Montefiore Medical Center Moses Campus. 

A 19-bed teaching service on this floor is staffed entirely by family medicine residents and attending physicians.


"Service Without Walls"

Family medicine patients who require specialized services elsewhere in the hospital are followed closely by family medicine hospitalists who coordinate care with patients' primary care providers.

In all instances, hospital care is treated as an acute episode requiring a thoughtful, safe transition back to care in the community, with emphasis on the prevention of future hospitalizations. Maternity and newborn care is provided to family medicine patients by family physicians at the Montefiore Wakefield Campus.


Specialized Inpatient Services

Montefiore's Palliative Care Service provides consultation services for adults with late-stage disease at all three of Montefiore's inpatient divisions. The palliative care inpatient service, located on the family medicine inpatient unit, provides comprehensive direct care for patients nearing the end of life.

The Wound Healing Program provides advanced care, including bedside debridement, for hospitalized patients whose chronic wounds increase their risk for future morbidity and mortality.
