We also have a comprehensive outpatient antibiotic management service which facilitates early hospital discharge and completion of antibiotic therapy in the home or assisted living centers.
COLLABORATIONS: We also work closely with primary care physicians throughout the region, providing advice, opinions and co-management services in these same complex areas of medicine.
