Our experienced staff assigns each patient a treatment team that manages the patient’s clinical care daily. A psychiatrist directs each team, which also includes nurses, social workers, therapists and mental-health technicians. The team approach ensures that each individual will have a specialized treatment plan to address self-reliance and quality of life.
Psychiatrist - The psychiatrist and treatment team members develop a treatment plan and will coordinate medical care as needed with other specialists. The psychiatrist leads the treatment team.
Nurses - After a patient is admitted, psychiatric nurses evaluate his or her immediate concerns. These nurses are specially trained, both in terms of general behavioral health and geriatric behavioral health. They manage medications, meet safety and nursing needs and provide counseling.
Recreational therapists - Recreational therapists provide therapies that will help patients with daily life skills and leisure activities.
Social Workers - Psychiatric social workers determine the patient’s social needs, provide family therapy, group therapy and individual therapy when appropriate. They also assist with discharge planning.
Mental health technicians - Mental health technicians and patient care technicians provide guidance and education on behavioral health issues, and assist with the patient’s personal care needs.
