Offering psychiatric urgent care expertise to assist with patients in behavioral health crises.
Many hospitals are often overwhelmed with significant volumes of patients presenting in psychiatric crisis who have few options other than to seek services in emergency medical settings. These med-surg settings are typically not equipped to manage the needs of patients experiencing a behavioral healthcare crisis – which tend to be expensive and episodic – resulting in them being less effective at keeping people connected to available community services.
Sheppard Pratt Solutions offers psychiatric urgent care expertise to assist with patients in behavioral health crises. These services are designed to specifically evaluate, assess, and triage patients to the least restrictive setting. Our community crisis services include on-site and virtual urgent care, residential crisis programs, assertive community treatment, and mobile crisis teams, among others.
