Inpatient Psychiatric Services

Inpatient Psychiatric Services provides 23 acute psychiatric beds serving persons over the age of 18 with acute behavioral health concerns. It is operated on a 24-hour basis, and admission to the inpatient unit can be either on a voluntary or involuntary basis. The unit is staffed with nurses, physicians, social workers, and occupational therapists, and provides care aimed at helping patients recover in a supportive environment.

We provide our patients with structure, psychotherapy and support groups. In addition to psychiatric services, an internist visits the unit daily to address general medical concerns.

We welcome family members, friends, and support persons on the unit, and recognize them as important partners in care.
