St. Patrick Hospital offers acute inpatient treatment for individuals with a primary psychiatric diagnosis. There are 30 inpatient beds: six adolescent, six intensive care and 18 general care beds. Adolescents and adults receive treatment under the direction of a psychiatrist provided by clinical social workers, licensed addiction counselors, nurses, occupational therapists, pharmacists, dieticians and other health care professionals.
Treatment is short-term and directed towards evaluation, stabilization of symptoms and referral to outpatient services as needed. Admission is by referral, must meet admission criteria and an appropriate bed (ICU/adolescent/general) must also be available. Any physician with privileges at St. Patrick Hospital can admit to the inpatient unit.
