Geriatric Care Center at UPMC St. Margaret

Specialty Care for the Older Adult

UPMC St. Margaret Geriatric Care Center is an evaluation and treatment center designed to meet the health needs of people over age 60. Along with specialized medical and psychiatric care, geriatric professionals assist older adults and their families in making health care decisions to fulfill the patient’s daily needs.

Our geriatric team, including a physician, psychiatrist, neuropsychologist, registered nurse, clinical pharmacist, and licensed clinical social worker, provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment. Once evaluated, patients and their families have the opportunity to discuss treatment plans and recommendations with health care professionals.
