New Behavorial Health Unit Opening in the Spring of 2019
For many adults, behavioral health problems can be serious and challenging
to their physical health. Accurate diagnosis and treatment of mental health
conditions can greatly enhance the quality of life.
We will establish a specialized unit within our hospital to focus on geropsychiatry,
an area of medicine that addresses the unique physical and emotional needs
of older adults. Our experienced, compassionate team of healthcare professionals
will dedicate themselves to providing tender care and emotional support
that patients and families need. We will support and encourage family
members to participate in their loved ones treatment and process.
Each patient will receive an individualized assessment and treatment plan
including individual and group therapy, planned activities and family
support prepared by our multidisciplinary team of behavioral experts.
This plan will create a path to recovery including a discharge plan focusing
on maintaining a healthy body/mind lifestyle.
