Geriatric Psychiatry Inpatient Unit

Geriatric Psychiatry Program | Division of Geriatric Psychiatry and Neuropsychiatry

This eleven-bed unit, located on Meyer 6 of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, specializes in the treatment of medically complicated elderly patients with severe affective and neuropsychiatric disorders. The unit is staffed by psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists and physical therapists who are experts in the care of the psychiatrically ill elderly.

Typically patients on this unit are ones for whom other inpatient and outpatient treatment modalities have failed and/or they have complicating medical conditions that cannot be managed in other psychiatric programs. The most common disorders treated are depression, bipolar disorder and schizphrenia. Patients with neurological conditions such as Parkinson's disease that are complicated by psychiatric symptoms are also cared for on this unit.

For more information about inpatient admissions, please contact the Admissions Office at 410-955-5104
