Infectious Diseases Consultation

The Immunology Center provides consultation services about infectious diseases for communities in southern New England.

The center’s collaborative team includes physicians, nurses, a physician assistant and administrative staff. Faculty board certified in infectious diseases and fellows offer expertise in a variety of infectious diseases in the outpatient setting.

These include consultations with providers in the community, as well as follow-up care for patients with infectious diseases acquired during hospitalizations. The center sees patients with a diverse range of infections, including but not limited to:

  • Central nervous system infections
  • Chronic or refractory infections
  • Viral infections
  • Endocarditis
  • Nosocomial infections
  • Infections in immunocompromised patients, including patients with cancer
  • Osteomyelitis

Furthermore, we facilitate outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy for patients following hospitalizations, which involves close monitoring of patients and coordination of care with various facilities and health care providers involved in parenteral management.

Every month we see more than 100 patients who require consultation for infectious diseases.
