Disabled individuals often require a great deal of medical support during the rehabilitation process. Universal (either through staff physicians* or external physicians) manages the complex medical process that our clients often face. Whether it is a simple cold or complicated medical condition our team of dedicated professionals will arrange, oversee, transport and follow-up on all medical related issues.
The Agency works closely with all of the clients “stakeholders” including families, case managers, guardians and insurers to facilitate a smooth and efficient medical management process. All Universal facilities have lead “Care Coordinators” whose job it is to oversee this intensive process and communicate effectively with clients and stakeholders alike.
Our physician team includes internal and external medical specialists in the fields of Physiatry, Neurology, Psychiatry, Ophthalmology, Rheumatology, Cardiology and Internal Medicine. In addition we have the ability to consult with physicians from any other specialty at a moment’s notice. This access ensures that our clients will never need to wait when there is a medical issue.
*The availability of internal Universal “staff physicians” varies from program to program.
