Welcome to Medicine

Southlake’s Medicine program focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases and illnesses. More than 76,000 complex care, critical care and patients needing immediate attention are treated every year at Southlake. Even when you no longer need hospital medical treatments, tests and procedures, our Medicine team will assist you with your transfer to home care through our Southlake@home program.

Depending on the care needed for you as prescribed by your physician, Southlake’s medicine clinics offer a large array of support, including: Clinical Telemedicine Program, Diabetes Education Centre, Geriatric Outreach Team, Health Coach Team, Medicine Clinics, Nurse-Led Outreach Team (to long-term care facilities), Outpatient Respiratory Services, Community Resources, and Telehomecare (Ontario Telehealth Network).

It’s important to note if you are admitted to Southlake you may be transferred to one of our Restorative Care Units, where you will receive specialized, restorative care from a dedicated team of health professionals who will know you and your care needs. Your care team on this unit will focus on your specific needs and goals, while working to foster your independence and optimize your remaining strengths and abilities.
