Treatment and Prevention of Infectious Diseases
Infectious disease experts at Catholic Health diagnose and treat common and rare infections caused by viruses, fungi, parasites and bacteria. Our team of specialists partner with your primary care physician to manage your condition. We also provide ongoing care if you have an immune disorder like HIV/AIDS.
Our physicians and staff constantly monitor and improve the infection control programs at all Catholic Health facilities. We offer surveillance, response, policy development, education and oversight.
