About Medical Care

An integrated approach in medical care brings together a team of different healthcare professionals who collaborate to provide holistic care and improve the overall well-being of patients.

 

The multi-disciplinary team includes doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, medical social workers and other healthcare professionals.

Patients with more complex medical conditions typically require more comprehensive care. Some examples of such conditions include: diabetes, stroke, fracture and dementia.
