Compass: Fall/Winter 2018

In this issue:

Events and Activities



Welcome back to Northeast Medical Group’s Compass, an e-newsletter dedicated to keep you informed, empowered and engaged in your health care. In this edition, we highlight just a few of the ways in which we dedicate ourselves to providing the highest quality patient care.  

A feature article about the coordination, communication and collaborative teamwork between your NEMG primary care provider and hospitalists showcases how these health care professionals work together seamlessly to care for you during  a hospital stay. Such transitions and coverage provides excellent continuity of care from admission to discharge, and allows you to focus on your health with the knowledge that you will receive consistent and appropriate treatment every step of the way.    

Additional articles discuss the reasons why men should focus on their health throughout the year; the importance of having a conversation with your primary care provider about the shingles vaccine; why we encourage all of our Medicare beneficiaries to have an annual wellness visit yearly; and a “tour” of our new multispecialty center in Westport. 

As the year comes to a close, I’d like to wish each and every one of you a happy holiday season. May you enjoy this special time with your friends and family.
