Infectious Disease: Whole-Person Care

Our Infectious Disease team tackles the evaluation, counseling, and treatments of complicated infections or immunologic disease, such as HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted infections, viral hepatitis, travel-related illness, and more. That is hard-hitting science. But we treat more than just your infection—we listen to all your facts, fears, and experiences to help you create a plan that will address all the factors that critically affect your health.

The North Memorial Health Advantage

  • Our energetic, enthusiastic team includes pharmacists, nurses, case managers, CMAs, physicians, and advanced practitioners, who believe treating an infection involves personalized care for the whole person.
  • We do more than just testing and diagnosing in the clinic—we can also help connect you to help with drug costs or community resources to address all the factors that infringe upon your good health.
  • We partner with many HIV/AIDS service organizations to provide one-stop care for our patients with HIV infection, including the Minnesota AIDS Project and the Ryan White–funded Medication Adherence Program.
  • We provide screening for the prevention of anal cancer—a cancer caused by Human Papillomavirus infection—through the use of a procedure called high resolution anoscopy.
  • We continuously monitor our many patients who need intravenous antibiotics, whether they are receiving their antibiotics at home, in transitional care, or through our Patient Care Center.

If you need a referral, we recommend meeting with one of our primary care providers.
