Mahaska County Hospital Closing Geriatric Psychiatry Unit
OSKALOOSA, Iowa -- Friday is the last day for the inpatient geriatric psychiatry unit in Oskaloosa. The Mahaska Health Partnership Hospital is closing the unit known as Vision Quest, an eight-bed unit that specialized in diagnosis and care of seniors with mental health issues. Hospital leaders say this was a financial decision in light of changes in payments by Medicare Advantage plans.
