Reaching out for mental health support can be hard. At Phelps, you will receive the help you need in a safe, compassionate and confidential setting. We are dedicated to your care or the care of someone you love. We welcome all patients to our world-class Inpatient Psychiatric Unit, as well as our outpatient psychiatric and counseling services.
Please call for Inpatient Psychiatric Admissions, or for more information.
Our 22-bed Inpatient Psychiatric Unit provides acute and around-the-clock care to adults and geriatric patients. We tailor treatment to your individual needs to improve your quality of life.
Mental illness is multi-dimensional, so we take a multidisciplinary approach to treatment with a team that includes psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers and occupational therapists. We value and encourage your active involvement in your treatment, and will continuously assess your progress, symptom management, and coping skills.
Phelps’ mental health services also include a program specially designed for geriatric patients. This program focuses on managing the physical and mental challenges that come with aging.
Inpatient Psychiatry patients may receive visitors from 1-2 pm and 5-6 pm daily.
Mental health problems in older adults are often overlooked and left untreated.1 If a family member or loved one needs help, contact us.
