Washington Hospital Center has a program called "Medical House Calls". The program provides primary care services by a team of dedicated physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers and others. These health care teams make house calls to the homes of elderly residents to provide the ongoing care and preventive care they need in the comfort and privacy of their own homes.
