Senior Diagnostic Unit
Caring for Seniors. Providing Options.
The Senior Diagnostic Unit is housed on 6-West in the South Tower of Stormont-Vail HealthCare. This 12-bed unit provides psychiatric assessment and treatment for patients 60 years of age and over. Patients include those with prior behavioral problems as well as those with newly observed symptoms secondary to aging, grief or medical problems that could interfere with someone’s thinking.
Some of the conditions the unit treats, such as dementia and depression, can be easily confused, but with our multi-disciplinary team approach, the correct diagnosis and treatment can be reached. We also give options for the future and provide education and connections to resources in the community. To inquire about possible admission, call (785) 354-6695.
