HIV


HIV medical collageAt Sixteenth Street we offer a full scope of coordinated HIV care.  We utilize four Internal Medicine and Family Practice physicians specializing in HIV treatment, a comprehensive HIV Department, and consulting HIV specialists to provide top quality team-based care to our patients with HIV/AIDS.

Team-Based Care

Sixteenth Street physicians meet as many of the needs of the patient as possible within the Sixteenth Street setting in a manner that is most comfortable and effective for the patient.  Patients are serviced by a multidisciplinary team including their HIV Specialist, Behavioral Health Provider, Infectious Disease Specialist and Medical Case Management. Once a year when the patient is seen by the HIV specialist, the specialist comes to Sixteenth Street and sits side by side with a Sixteenth Street physician to see and talk and with the patient.

Medical HIV case managers play a pivotal role assisting patients in the management HIV, working to remove barriers and assist patients in achieving wellness and wellbeing.  Case Manager are integrated oftentimes in both their medical appointments, community based appointments and have an open door for patients to discuss life stressors. Case managers are also help our patients learn about, access and link to other medical, social, community, legal, and financial services in our community and work to provide an empowering support system alike no other.

Sixteenth Street HIV services are housed in the patients’ Medical Home and therefore keep patients integrated and engaged in care rather than testing a persons with HIV/AIDS and then send them elsewhere.  As their medical home, our team of dedicated individuals treats our patients with the utmost expertise and compassion.

HIV testing and counseling is FREE, CONFIDENTIAL and available Monday-Friday, 8:30-5:00.
