San Fernando Valley Business Journal

Encino Hospital Medical Center plans to unveil the first Geriatric Emergency Room, or “senior ER,” in Southern California on Wednesday.

The facility will include both a senior ER and a Geriatric Inpatient Center, both designed to provide care for the Valley’s growing elder population.

Rooms will feature non-skid floors, handrails and thicker-than-normal mattresses to accommodate elder needs.
