Centura Health Physician Group

Centura Health Physician Group - Infectious Diseases

A service of Longmont United Hospital, Centura Health Physician Group - Infectious Diseases providers work to prevent, diagnose, and treat illnesses caused by microscopic organisms that penetrate the body’s natural barriers and multiply to create symptoms that can range from mild to deadly. We treat illness that may be acquired from insects or animals, or passed from person to person, as well as infections caused by injury or immune compromise. Some common examples include skin infections, diabetic foot infections, influenza, and hepatitis. When infections are unusual, or difficult to treat because of bacterial resistance or the patient’s complex medical background, the patient’s primary provider may request assistance from an infectious diseases specialist. Individuals may also directly consult an ID specialist. ID specialists are also experts in immunizations, both for domestic infections and for those acquired in international travel.

Because of our affiliation with Longmont United Hospital, laboratory and radiology support are easily accessible and of the highest quality. Referrals to other medical specialists as well as nutritional services, social workers and home health/hospice are facilitated through outstanding liaisons both within and outside of the Longmont United Hospital system.
