Morehouse General Hospital has added a state of the art geriatric psychiatric unit to the first floor. Helping Older People Emotionally is what the word HOPE stands for here at the hospital, and our staff is on a mission to do just that. The unit has ten private patient rooms equipped with lowering platform beds and shatter proof mirrors. A lot of time and thought was put into designing this unit to best serve our patients. Along with the private rooms, there are common areas and therapy rooms to help patients with their recovery. Visitors must be ages 12 and older. If you or anyone you know would like to be assessed to see if the hope unit is a good fit, contact the director of the HOPE unit, Shannon Grantham at 318.283.3900.
