The mission of the Department of Infectious Disease is to provide patients with technologically advanced and compassionate medical care.
Steven Gordon, MD
The Department of Infectious Disease is integrated within the Medicine Institute where we are guided by the following principles:
- Maintaining excellence in patient care across the continuum of care
- This includes providing a medical home for our patient with HIV and patients that discharged on parenteral antimicrobial agents via our Community Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy Program (CoPAT).
- Excellence in medical education
- Provision of opportunities for our staff to grow by partnering with colleagues in multidisciplinary teams organized around specific medical conditions.
- Offering inpatient infectious disease consultative services 7 days a week and providing continuity of care in our specialty outpatient clinics.
- Expansion of clinical research opportunities to build a core program integrated with the Medicine Institute that can successfully compete for external funding.
- Execution of our goals and measurement of our results
- Reduction of healthcare costs by leveraging digital technologies
- We have one of the lowest support staff to staff ratios committed to reviewing our processes for opportunities to improve inefficiencies.
