Day Hospital Services

Our day hospital services, also referred to as partial hospitalization programs (PHP), are a step below inpatient hospitalization in terms of level of treatment. For many patients, a day hospital is the next level of care they receive after they have stabilized or completed their inpatient treatment program, providing a patient with therapy or treatment during the day, and allowing them to return to the comforts of their own home at night. Other patients need concentrated care, but may not ever need the 24-hour monitoring that they would receive from an inpatient unit, so they start off in one of our day hospitals and then step down to a less restrictive program.

We accept patients from one of our inpatient units or specialty program inpatient services, as well as from our Crisis Walk-In Clinic (CWIC), Scheduled Crisis Intervention Program (SCIP), or a clinician referral. When admitted to one of our day hospitals, the patient receives intense therapy for at least 6.5 hours each day. On the first day of admission, the person is actually admitted by one of our expert psychiatrists, at which time he or she is seen, evaluated, and given the first treatment plan.
