Who We Are..........

It is the only Virginia state facility that exclusively treats elderly persons (65+ years of age) who are in need of inpatient treatment for mental illness; meet the requirements for voluntary or involuntary admission as determined by their mental health center (CSB) and do not have a medical condition that requires priority treatment in an acute care hospital.


To provide recovery based MH services to enable the elderly to thrive in the community.


For the hospital to be recognized as a leader in the treatment of the mentally ill elderly, as a model facility, a teaching center, and a resource for other facilities.  It will be seen as an indispensable component of the state system of community-based services, and as the most efficient provider of geropsychiatric services.
