The move from Unity Medical Center to Memphis Veterans Affairs Medical Center marks the end of Unity Psychiatric Nursing Homes. The name change is prompted by the increasing demand for coordinated, higher-quality psychosocial health services in the Memphis, TN area, according to Unity President and CEO Randy Hargrove, who also serves as director of nursing services at Memphis VA. Unity psychiatric care, a separate division of Franklin, TN-based American Health Partnership, has appointed Robert Edwards, executive vice president of strategic planning, as interim executive director of its Unity Nursing Homes program. The board will meet in the near future to decide a permanent replacement for Edwards, according to a statement from Unity.\n\n \n\nUnity Psychiatric Nursing Homes, which began in Memphis in 1963, focuses on helping individuals who have behavioral or psychiatric problems.
