Immediate Care for Those in Crisis
Part of our recent Emergency Department expansion, the Crisis Center provides the monitoring and immediate treatment you need. The center cares for you until you can be admitted to the hospital or released.
The Crisis Center Provides:
A Calming and Comforting Setting
The sights and sounds of an emergency room can be stressful under the best circumstances. For those dealing with a mental health emergency, they can be overwhelming and agitating. Having a discrete area with four designated treatment rooms provides a separation from other emergencies to ease stress and help keep you calm.
Immediate Evaluation and Care
The Crisis Center streamlines the process of evaluating and stabilizing mental health patients, to help relieve your suffering and ensure your safety. The team includes psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses and other professionals who are experienced in helping those in crisis.
Monitoring and Safety
The Crisis Center cares for mental health patients until they can be admitted for inpatient care or released. We keep you safe and secure and as comfortable as possible while you are in our care.
