Compass Geriatric Behavioral Health

Every stage of life brings new challenges and new opportunities to overcome. As an aging adult the needs of emotional and mental health services must be tailored to accommodate each of these stages. In a continuing effort to provide holistic care, Howard Memorial Hospital has opened the doors to a new program, Compass Geriatric Behavioral Health. This program is specifically designed to provide for the mental and emotional needs of area senior citizens. Our  intensive out-patient experience utilizes a  multidisciplinary approach that draws upon a full range of treatment methods and techniques, including psychiatric evaluations,  psychosocial assessment and history, nursing assessment and laboratory monitoring. Whether it is grief, loss of independence or a psychiatric illness, our experts are here to assist you.

Physician referral is not required. For assessments and consultations call 870-845-6069. We look forward to hearing from you.
