HIV Care Unit
Centers HIV Care Units have one mission: to provide first-class care that meets the needs of all our Residents with HIV. Through regular bloodwork, we maintain an ongoing record of Residents’ CD4 count and T cell count. We also monitor and maintain medications—the ultimate goal being to stabilize each resident’s viral load to the point that the HIV is undetectable. But our specialized care extends to psychological issues and substance abuse as well, recognizing that our residents’ mental health is as vital as their physical health. When appropriate, case managers arrange successful integration back into the community—assisting Residents to acquire Medicaid cards and to find suitable housing. Job placement services are also available to Residents when needed. Centers HIV Units offer comprehensive healthcare throughout the process, evidenced by our outstanding record of success.
Centers Vent Care Units are designed for patients who require ventilator care due to an injury, chronic disease or other respiratory complications. All of our Residents on ventilators are closely monitored by physicians, respiratory therapists and skilled nurses trained in respiratory care. Patient monitoring 24-hours a day ensures the greatest possible comfort, as our highly skilled staff blends empathy with expertise to create unique goal-oriented care plans for each Resident. Although some patients require the ventilator for the long-term, our units wean many patients off of vent care. The facilities with both an in-house vent unit and a dialysis unit provide even greater health benefits.
