It is expected that Golden Age Hospital will fill a void that currently exists in the area with respect to specialized and hospitalization for the care and treatment of older adults. Therefore, the organization requires an expert level of knowledge to treat this population through effective physician integration by using available resources (Cuellar & Gertler, 2006). Access to these care and treatment must demonstrate the appropriate combination of resources and physicians to support this patient population, while also considering other factors that will enhance outcomes for patients in this area. It is anticipated that the development of Golden Age Hospital will support the continued growth of the elderly population of Mission Viejo and the surrounding communities, thereby demonstrating a high level of need for this facility and the specialized services that will be provided. These efforts will demonstrate the importance of identifying the needs of older adults in this area and how the hospital will accommodate these concerns in an effective manner.
