The Memory and Alzheimer's Treatment Center is a collaborative partnership between the departments of psychiatry, neurology, and geriatric medicine that offers comprehensive evaluation and innovative treatment to patients with a range of conditions that affect cognition and memory, including Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, traumatic brain injury, and brain vascular disease.
Our expert team of specially trained physicians and nurses uses innovative, nationally recognized model of care developed here at Hopkins. Using diagnostic and treatment advances, patients are provided with a thorough assessment, diagnosis, and comprehensive treatment, as well as counseling, education and guidance for family caregivers.
Based at The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Campus, the Center and its physicians treat thousands of patients annually in outpatient, inpatient, and outreach settings. In addition to inpatient care and the outpatient clinic at Bayview, care is coordinated with sub-specialty clinics such as the Neuropsychiatry and Memory Clinic and the Frontotemporal and Young Onset Dementias Clinic at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in East Baltimore.
Patient care is integrated with research to develop new treatments for Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and with training programs for the lay public, physicians, specialists, other clinicians and researchers in the field.
