Our inpatient behavioral health services provide short-term intensive inpatient care for individuals who have voiced or demonstrated an intent to hurt themselves or others, or who behave in a manner that is considered gravely disabled.
Located within Day Kimball Hospital, our Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit is a 15-bed locked unit, which means that individuals can be admitted on either a voluntary or involuntary basis. Patients served are primarily ages 16 and older.
Our Inpatient Behavioral Health program provides continuous assessment and a coordinated, goal-driven treatment plan that is carried out by a multidisciplinary team of behavioral health professionals. The focus is on rapid stabilization of the acute symptoms.
Once stabilization has been achieved, clinicians will refer patients to appropriate follow-up care to continue their recovery. This may include referall to a partial hospital program, an intensive outpatient program, or therapy through our outpatient behavioral health program.
