Dr. Maureen C. Nash's bio

Maureen C. Nash, M.D., F.A.P.A. is board certified in both psychiatry and internal medicine and serves as the Medical Director of the Tuality Center for Geriatric Psychiatry (TCGP) at Tuality Forest Grove Hospital. TCGP is the only dedicated acute inpatient geriatric psychiatry unit in Oregon. She is the Co-Chair of the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry (AAGP) Clinical Practice Committee and has served on the AAGP Research Committee and Education Committee. With her involvement in this national effort, Dr. Nash is working to help promote the mental health and well being of older people and improve the care of those with late-life mental disorders. She has clinical appointments at Pacific University Physicians Assistant Program and at Oregon Health and Sciences University Psychiatry Department where she mentors PA students and geriatric psychiatry fellows. Dr. Nash is a sought after public speaker/expert and has been invited to give presentations to many organizations including the American Psychiatric Association, the AAGP, the National Association of Women Judges, the Oregon Bar Association Elder Law Section, the 2010 annual meeting of all of the Oregon Judiciary, and the Oregon Hospice Association among others. She provided the impetus for and worked with a large coalition of stakeholders to attain the passage of Oregon’s Senate Bill 16 in 2009 changing state law so that a person’s health care representative (aka health care power of attorney) could authorize acute psychiatric hospitalization for those with dementia and behavior disturbance. She currently serves on the State Plan for Alzheimer's Disease in Oregon Task Force, leading the Medical/Research subcommittee. Prior to joining the Tuality Center for Geriatric Psychiatry in 2005, Dr. Nash served as medical director of the Colby Center for Psychiatry (an inpatient psychiatric unit for older adults) at the Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake, N.Y. She earned her medical degree at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. She went on to complete her residency at the combined internal medicine/psychiatry residency program at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., where she also served as Chief Resident. She was an instructor in psychiatry at Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, N.H. Prior to her medical career she was a computer engineer specializing in hardware/ software integration in a research setting.
