Adult Psychiatric Unit

Adult Psychiatric Unit

Springfield Memorial Hospital has a 36-bed Adult Psychiatric Unit offering inpatient, outpatient and partial hospitalization services.

Inpatient Services

For those clients with significant risk factors and acute psychiatric symptoms, our dedicated adult inpatient unit provides a safe and secure environment for adults requiring psychiatric stabilization. We have a team of psychiatrists, licensed therapists and nurses who monitors patients around-the-clock until they are psychiatrically stable and no longer present a risk for harming themselves or others. Our team works with patients to address acute problems and develop goals that will lead to a successful recovery plan. Admission is through psychiatrists with admitting privileges to our unit, emergency departments and inpatient medical units.

Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization Services

Partial Hospitalization is a program for adults 18 and older whose depression and/or anxiety interferes with daily living. This program can help individuals manage anxiety or depressive symptoms that often accompany a serious illness or chronic pain and may be appropriate for patients ready for discharge from an inpatient program.

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is an outpatient treatment performed under the guidance of a psychiatrist and an anesthesiologist. Memorial’s ECT treatment is best suited for adults with severe or treatment-resistant depression or other mental health conditions such as mania, catatonia and schizophrenia who have not found relief with other treatments. Each treatment is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia and takes only minutes to complete.
