Infectious Disease Management
Franciscan Health has a dedicated infectious disease management program focused on preventing, investigating and controlling communicable diseases.
Infectious Disease Management, Prevention and Control
Franciscan Health has one of the largest, most experienced group of infectious disease specialists in the Midwest. All of our physicians are double or triple board-certified and work closely with primary care physicians to provide our patients with high-quality, comprehensive care.
We are committed to excellence in infection prevention and control. We have experienced physicians on-call who specialize in the treatment of infectious diseases and have privileges at each of our hospitals. These physicians have access to a broad range of diagnostic testing through the hospital and our states' Department of Health.
Services offered through our infectious disease management program:
- Disease management education
- Full-service on-site laboratory
- Inpatient and outpatient care
- Ambulatory infusion services
Travel medicine clinics to serve individuals who are traveling to areas where they will be exposed to diseases in which they have no immunities.
The infection prevention and control program has been tasked with ensuring the safety of our patients, physicians and staff by coordinating many activities designed to prevent, control and investigate communicable diseases. If patients have concerns or questions about an illness, they should contact their physician.
