Medical Services Overview

The Villa maintains a Medical Department to ensure that all youth receive timely and comprehensive medical care. The department employs an agency nurse five (5) days a week to administer medication and provide minor medical care. There is also a Medical Office Coordinator who is responsible for ensuring that all doctors’ orders are carried out, including laboratory testing, preventative care, sick care and specialists follow-ups.

There are also transporters, whose primary responsibility is to ensure that youth attend all appointments. The Villa has an established relationship with the Visiting Nurses Association as well. This organization provides on-site Primary Care Physicians two days a week, so that youth are able to receive medical care directly on-site. Liaison relationships are maintained with other adjunct health care providers to ensure a comprehensive array of necessary medical and substance abuse services.
