geriatric health center open
Johnson Memorial Hospital in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, recently opened a new 15-bed geriatric wellness unit.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and blessing was held late last month to celebrate the opening of the Lillian “Dolly” Santilli Geriatric Wellness Pavilion.
Director of Behavioral Health Dr. Edna N. “With a significant increase in the number of older adults projected in our service sector in the coming years, the need for this new unit is undeniable,” Rodriguez said. “If left untreated, behavioral health disorders in older adults can lead to reduced functioning, substance use disorders, poor quality of life and increased mortality, as well as slow healing from physical ailments. Not only will it serve this vulnerable patient population, it will also provide relief to their loved ones who seek the best possible care for their seniors.”
The 15-bed Acute Care Unit includes private and semi-private rooms with private showers. Designed to provide a “homelike” environment, the unit features pod-style housing and community areas with large windows, allowing for natural light and beautiful views of the rural hospital’s mountain setting.
This unit will care for appropriate patients throughout the Trinity Health of New England region, including Connecticut and western Massachusetts.
Johnson Memorial President Stuart Rosenberg said, “The inauguration of the new Lillian “Dolly” Santilly Geriatric Wellness Pavilion is representative of Johnson Memorial Hospital’s commitment to serving as a transformative, curative presence in the local community.” We are grateful to our Johnson colleagues who worked tirelessly to support our approach to this unit, and we are confident that their clinical expertise and caring attitude will truly benefit this vulnerable patient population. ,
