Our healthcare needs change as we grow older. Some seniors are on the go, some live with chronic conditions and some face serious illnesses. But at every stage of life, seniors can turn to Nazareth Hospital. Trust us to give you both excellent care and excellent caring.
At Nazareth, we touch nearly every aspect of a senior’s life. Our services include:
With kindness and skill, our emergency department physicians, nurses and staff make you welcome, ease your mind and set you on the path to recovery. We provide person-centered care in a soothing environment with private rooms. Whether you are admitted to the hospital or discharged to home, we work together to make sure you have access to needed resources and follow-up when you leave.
Mercy Cancer Center at Nazareth Hospital, a member of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network, offers a complete array of services to prevent, diagnose and treat every form of cancer—close to home.
