About the new unit:


Ascension Mercy Gero-Psych Unit

As advances in medicine and technology have allowed Americans to live longer, there is a growing need for specialized services related to how aging affects mental health. Ascension Mercy Medical will be opening a new Gero-Psychiatric Inpatient Unit to provide cognitive, emotional and behavioral care for seniors. The program will provide treatment for patients with a wide variety of psychiatric illnesses including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and thought disorders. The main components of care will include diagnostic evaluation, solution focused treatment, group therapy, behavioral strategies, medication evaluation and management and aftercare planning. Families will be closely involved and encouraged to participate during hospitalization. As planning and construction have been rapidly underway, the first phase of this project is in the final days of completion. The new unit will consist of 8 inpatient beds; located on the 5th floor. Several new associates have been hired and have been in orientation. We welcome them to our Mercy family. The unit will officially open to accept patients on Monday, June 18th.
