Growing older is not without a few aches and pains. At OU Medical Center Edmond, we understand that sometimes you need a little extra TLC. That is why we developed our comprehensive Senior Health Clinic with you in mind.
At the Senior Health Clinic, our experienced senior health team, led by Larry D. Balzer, M.D., will coordinate and manage your care should you need to see a local specialist or require extra help at home.
OU Medical Center Edmond offers several specialty services with seniors in mind, including:
Autumn Life Center for Geriatric Behavioral Health
The Autumn Life Center is an inpatient unit that assesses the mental health of adults 60 and older. Most patients stay an average of 10 days as our staff assesses the person and puts together a care plan. This is not an assisted living unit. Autumn Life Center admits adults for a variety of mental health issues, and anyone can call and ask for an assessment for themselves or a loved one. Our highly trained staff will assess the patient, and if inpatient care is needed, will admit to the unit. For more information, please call (405) 359-5253.
