Other health care partners include the providers that care for you right in the comfort of our community
Pharmacy services, provided by Omnicare pharmacy make daily deliveries of medications directly to us. You won’t need to inconvenience yourself or anyone else by going to the local drug store. Our staff receives the medication and places in our medication carts that go room-to-room, simplifying the medication process and taking the stress out of the sometimes-complicated world of so many medications. You’re in good hands.
Should you require lab work, our lab technicians come to Saint Joseph, again making it easier on you. Your doctor manages your care and will order lab work as necessary, every resident’s lab needs are different.
Our contracted lab and X-ray services are also available on-site. The mobile x-ray technician brings equipment to your bedside and conducts the x-rays your physician has ordered.
SJLC partners with United Healthcare Optum, which benefits you if you are a long, term resident. Their nurses are in the building daily assisting with the medical oversight of your care. Their goal is to treat you in the nursing home and to avoid hospitalization. If you’d like additional information on United Healthcare Optum, please see one of our social workers.
