Inpatient psychiatric services

When you need to stay in one of our hospitals for your treatment, we do everything we can to make it as comfortable and easy as possible. Our psychiatrists and mental health teams offer immediate diagnosis, intervention and stabilization. When you are admitted, you'll find our behavioral health units are designed to ensure privacy and are located in their own wings. This provides a peaceful setting and enables a faster, better recovery.

What to expect during inpatient care

Inpatient mental health involves an overnight or extended stay in the hospital. This is often most useful for those who need constant monitoring or physical medical services in conjunction with mental health care. We provide this care for a wide range of conditions, including everything from depression and senior mental health issues to substance abuse and addiction.

If you are in an emergency situation, including a situation in which harmful or suicidal behaviors are possible, call 911.
