Located on Highway 21, one-half mile north of 1-12, the modern 42,000 square foot hospital facility offers comprehensive neuropsychiatric services to adults and adolescents. The 56-bed hospital opened for patients Monday, October 8. Greenbrier Hospital is built on 12 acres of beautifully wooded property offering a spacious, yet private environment for its patients. Dorsey W. Dysart, M.D., founder of new HSA Greenbrier Hospital, will serve as its medical director. William J. Van Veen, M.D. will serve as Greenbrier's medical director for Adult Proqrams. Sidewalk FROM PAGE ONE a new sidewalk on the north and south side of the first block of West Pine was not everything it first appeared to be when promised. The local project engineer had indicated the sidewalk funds could be used to form a base for a new herringbone style brick sidewalk on both sides of the historic downtown district street. Gideon later learned that the state was really onl willing to put in a standard concrete walk, and that wasn't the rest of the bad news. Instead of replacing Ponchatoula's wide and spacious 16 foot sidewalks, the state intends only to provide a four foot wide strip of concrete, said the mayor, who explained that he and the lawmakers representing this area were going to go for full sidewalks, if not the brick walks originally hoped-for. Teacher FROM PAGE ONE Already over 150 orders have been taken in the community for the 1985 Greenback, about 50 short of the total needed in sales to make the project a success, said Mrs. Zabbia. Exhibiting the kind of tenaciousness and artistic spirit that catapulted her to high honors among ffer fellow educators, Mrs. Zabbia says the ongoing yearbook project is taking much more of her attention than even the Teacher of the Year award. Though there is still time enough to imagine what it would be like to capture on her canvas scenes of the earth from outer space, and how one would raise such a notion in conversation in the HSA Greenbrier Hospital's administrator is William T. Nolan, MBA, Ph.D. Ann Winkel, Ponchatoula. Louisiana, is the Community Liaison Director of Covington's new hospital. BethAnn Coombs, New Orleans, is Greenbrier's Director of Nursing. Additional clinical staff are Deborah Allison, Program Director, Adult Services, John Schleuss, Manager, Adolescent Services, Joal Russell. RT.. Recreational Therapist, and Virginia Woods, RT., Recreational Therapist. HSA Greenbrier Hospital is owned and operated by Healthcare Services of America, Inc., a Birmingham. Alabama based psychiatric hospital development company. The company owns and operates 18 psychiatric hospitals or chemical dependence units nationwide. In addition, Healthcare Services of America had several facilities under construction and 11 in the developmental stage. Council FROM PAGE ONE presented a proposal by landscape architect Hansen Austin for beautifying Memorial Park. Pepitone said: "The architect will use existing trees and shrubs and will add other plants throughout the park." He said : "The Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival Board had allocated $2,000 for improvements in the park where the festival is held." "I hope I haven't jumped the gun on this," Mayor Gideon told Pepitone: "we should still have about $1,200 of the $2,000 left for landscaping, rm also looking into getting a federal grant for the project. 'q met with board member Leo Dean and Steve Pugh recently at the park because the two were asking what could the festival board do to improve the park. So i decided on a vandalproof water fountain," Gideon said. "They said 'order it, and the board will pay for it."' After a brief discussion about placing trees within the playing field area and northwest quadrant of the grounds. "The plan could.., alleviate these problems," Pepitone said. "The city should take bids on the landscaping project." In other action Pepitone reported he had noticed a trailer moved onto property on North Seventh street near Barringer Drive. The mayor say he will send someone to investigate.
