The Viking Culinary Center in Bryn Mawr was the scene on March 15 of
“Dining Alfresco,” the Women’s Board of Bryn Mawr Hospital’s third
annual spring event. Catsy Michell and Mandy Swope were event co-chairs.
Over 100 ladies turned out for the popular “fun/draiser” featuring
cocktails, buffet, door prizes, shopping and cooking demonstrations. On
hand to salute the Women’s Board for the role they play as ambassadors
to the hospital community were Hospital President Andrea Gilbert;
Medical Staff President Emma Simpson, MD; and Linda A. Ryan, MD, of Main
Line Health Psychiatric Associates.
Celebrating 25 years of service in 2011, the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit
at Bryn Mawr Hospital is an acute care facility offering private
psychiatric treatment in a secure, comfortable setting. Patients with a
wide variety of psychiatric disorders are treated by a multidisciplinary
treatment team. Staff is trained to assess and treat most acute
psychiatric illnesses with the goal of helping the individual return to
normal functioning and reclaim his or her life in the community.
Patients who are abusing alcohol or other drugs in addition to having a
psychiatric disorder may participate in the Dual-Diagnosis Treatment
Program. Second year psychiatry residents from Thomas Jefferson
University Hospital and medical students from Thomas Jefferson
University receive training on the unit.
