New Behavorial Health Unit Opening in the Summer of 2018
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 27-bed 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
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.
