Many Ancillary services are offered throughout our medical centers, please check with the center for specific services. Ancillary Services include, but not limited to the following:
Each of the CAC-Florida Medical Centers has a complete lab drawing station. Whether their needs are large or small, routine or complex, our patients can depend on us for a full range of the highest quality diagnostic testing.
Our physicians have access to test ordering and result delivery applications such as eLabCorp and e-Results. The online test ordering capability allows orders to be entered electronically in the doctor's office. Electronic results allow our physicians to view both preliminary patient result information and final patient reports quickly, efficiently, and securely. The patient's test results are available to our physicians for diagnostic consultations, regardless of time or day they need to review the results.
CAC-Florida Medical Centers provide services to our patients when medical problems or other health-related conditions limit their ability to move and function in their daily lives.
Our Pain Modalities departments work in conjunction with our physicians and patients in order to develop, maintain, and restore maximum movement and functional ability. This includes providing services in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease, or environmental factors. CAC-Florida Medical Centers' Pain Modalities departments provide hot pack, TENS, paraffin, ultrasound, and whirlpool services, as ordered by the patient's physician.
In order to help our patients maintain as much agility as possible as part of healthy aging, CAC-Florida Medical Centers provide chair massages in the Wellness and Activities Centers.
Certified massage professionals provide the massages, which involve acting on and manipulating the body with pressure, either structured or unstructured. The massage may be stationary or involve moving parts of the body with tension, motion, or vibration. The goal is to reduce "state anxiety" — a reaction to a particular situation — as well as blood pressure and heart rate.
For individual counseling, registered dietitians perform a complete nutrition assessment that includes the patient's metabolic, nutrition and lifestyle factors.
Based on this assessment, they help each patient identify practical and achievable nutrition goals and develop an individualized nutrition treatment plan that matches the individual's lifestyle and preferences.
Current referrals from physicians for nutrition education include, but are not limited to, the following indications:
