New Service at FTJ – US Post Acute Care

US Post Acute Care logo

For ease of access for our residents, Franke Tobey Jones has partnered with US Post Acute Care to bring

primary care (routine services or “as needed” services) to our campus.  Why leave FTJ when the clinic can come to our resident’s apartment?  US Post Acute Care’s Senior Clinic is staffed by a leading medical group that specialized in senior care medicine.  These experienced physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants are licensed and highly trained medical providers with all the skills and experience required to meet medical needs.

Here are some of the services they can provide and conditions they can treat:

  • COVID-19 Testing
  • Sore throats
  • Sinus infections
  • Memory care
  • Flu and flu shots
  • Strep throat
  • Ear infections
  • Mental health screenings
  • Colds
  • Sink Rashs
  • Urinary track infections
  • Labs and testing
  • Fever
  • Wellness exam
  • Eye infections
  • Chronic care management

“We are very excited to be partnering with a wonderful organization like US Post Acute Care, comments FTJ Chief Operations Officer, Bob Beckham. “Providing our assisted living, memory care and independent residents with an option for on-site primary medical care is so critical. During the COVID pandemic we have realized the importance of bringing services to our residents instead of them needing to leave campus. US Post Acute Care will make seeing a primary care physician more efficient and convenient.”

US Post Acute Care physicians can see our residents by appointment or as needed and will be on campus every other week.  If you have questions or would simply like to learn more, call Jessica Rueber, FTJ Social Services Coordinator, at 253-756-1313.
