"More than ever before, Pharmacists are being called into action to be active participants in the interdisciplinary care team to face today's challenging healthcare landscape. As experts in medication management, Pharmacists must assume responsibility for bridging the many gaps that still exist in our delivery systems to ensure optimal management of simple to complex disease states."

Consistently ranked as among the best hospitals in the nation for Rehabilitation by U.S.News & World Report, Jefferson physicians and therapists have been leaders in rehabilitation medicine for more than 30 years. A team of occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists, rehab nurses, therapeutic recreation specialists, social workers and psychologists support the full-time staff of board-certified physicians. The Department's goal is to evaluate and treat patients with a disease, disorder or injury that impairs normal function.
The Department of Rehabilitation Medicine is also home to the Regional Spinal Cord Injury Center of the Delaware Valley. Jefferson, in affiliation with the Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, is designated as one of the nation's 14 Model Spinal Cord Injury Centers by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research in the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, and is the only such center in the Delaware Valley.
The primary activities of Jefferson's Department of Pharmacy are providing pharmaceutical care to our patients. In performing this function, our pharmacists play an integral role in the delivery of patient care throughout the Hospitals.
Some examples of how Jefferson pharmacists support specialized aspects of the Hospitals' patient-care mission include:
- Infectious disease management
- Pharmacokinetic screening and monitoring
- Acute and chronic pain management
- Code blue responses
- Therapeutic interchanges
- Comprehensive drug therapy reviews
- Specialized nutritional support
- Leadership in medication safety initiatives

Jefferson's laboratories provide a complete range of advanced testing capabilities to support the diagnosis and treatment of patients throughout the Hospital.
The Department's anatomic and surgical pathologists are divided into specialized subgroups within the laboratories that focus on chemical, endocrinologic, toxicologic, radioimmune, flow cytometric, hematologic and microbiologic tests.
In particular, Jefferson pathologists play an integral role in the care of cancer patients by analyzing tumor samples to make precise diagnoses and to stage cancers. The expertise of our pathologists is essential in determining the best course of treatment. Reports from pathologists also help gauge a tumor's response to therapy to determine its effectiveness and plot a new course of treatment if necessary.
Our pathologists comprise a large and active group of researchers who conduct both basic technological and applied pathology investigations. Areas of concentration in which researchers have made advances include liver pathology, basic cancer research, electronmicroscopy, oncologic immunopathology and the effects of alcohol on the body.
Patients receive the latest in high-quality diagnostic and treatment imaging services at Jefferson's Radiology Department. Our facilities include state-of-the-art equipment and are staffed by skilled technologists and nurses. Jefferson radiologists perform and interpret nearly half a million examinations per year. Today the Jefferson Department of Radiology is recognized as one of the premier departments in the country based on clinical expertise, academic productivity and excellence in educational programs.
In order to achieve the highest levels of diagnosis and interpretation, the Department is divided into nine divisions, based on either anatomic system or imaging modality. Each division has a director who is responsible for the quality of examinations and workflow within their area. Divisions function as a group to provide expertise in all imaging modalities and techniques, and the highest possible quality of medical care.
