Northridge Medical Center will hold a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for Willow Brook Senior Wellness, a 12-bed in-patient unit dedicated to taking care of senior adults who suffer from depression, anxiety, unresolved grief, Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.
“Join us on Wednesday, Dec. 7, and drop by anytime between 4:30 and 6:00 p.m. to tour Willow Brook,” said Tricia Massey, marketing director. “We will have our ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:15 p.m. Refreshments will be served and guests will be able to meet the staff and tour the new unit. Northridge has invested $1.2 million for this unit as a new service to senior adults not only in Jackson and Banks counties, but in outlying areas as well.
“When you come and see our new unit, not only will you be impressed with the look and feel of Willow Brook, but you will be most impressed with the quality of staff that has been hired. Dr. Mike Shah, a psychiatrist will lead the team as the medical director of Willow Brook. Crystal Hughes, a registered nurse, will be the nurse manager and program director overseeing the implementation of patient care. We also have a lot of other staff members who have mental health experience. This is a great team. We are so excited about offering this service to senior adults who often don’t get treated because friends and family do not want to drive to Atlanta, which is where the closest senior mental health unit is located.”
