About Elder Care
At Miami Valley Hospital, we know that caring for our elder patients is especially important. In fact, we have created the Elder Care program to allow us to focus on providing superior care to seniors admitted for hospitalization.
Our employees receive special staff education and training regarding the unique needs of hospitalized seniors.
