The Division of Geriatric Psychiatry was created in 2018 and is led by Dr. Nancy J. Donovan at Brigham & Women’s Hospital. Clinical services are directed by Dr. Juan Carlos Urizar and ______ are led by Dr. Ricardo Salazar. We offer interdisciplinary care for our patients and their families provided by specialists in geriatric neuropsychiatry (Drs. Nancy Donovan, Juan Carlos Urizar and Ricardo Salazar), geriatric psychiatry (Dr. Catherine Gonzalez) and geriatric psychology (Dr. Abby Altman). The care we provide is supported by expert social workers across inpatient and outpatient services. Our clinical and research mission is to advance the understanding of psychiatric and neuropsychiatric conditions of late-life in order to innovate effective treatments and enable a high quality of life for older adults.
