The mission of the John G. Bartlett Specialty Practice is to provide outstanding, evidence-based, clinical infectious disease care with access for all. This 23 exam room clinic co-locates services for patients with an array of infectious diseases including infections obtained after transplantation or on medical devices, HIV, hepatitis, general infectious diseases (such as fever of unknown origin, bone infections, lung infections or patients on IV antibiotics) and PrEP (HIV Pre-exposure prophylaxis) treatment and care.
The clinic site location provides street-level access to an onsite pharmacy, phlebotomy services, HCV and HIV counseling and testing services, and social services and case management alongside the various multidisciplinary sub-specialists within the clinic for patients living with HIV (gynecology, medication adherence support, mental health, nephrology, neurology, nutrition, primary care, substance abuse counseling and buprenorphine treatment). The clinic also offers liver elastography, pentamidine inhalation and sputum induction room, support groups, a treatment room and access to clinical trials. The clinic is staffed with more than 70 providers, nurses, medical assistants, social workers, peer navigators, Pharm D’s and research staff who assist with patient care. An inpatient service, the Polk Unit, coordinates inpatient care closely with the patient and outpatient clinic for admissions and discharges.
