The Psychiatric Medical Unit is a 20-bed specialty unit on the Saint Mary's campus at Jefferson Street for individuals experiencing both acute psychiatric distress as well as significant medical conditions of a physical nature. The level of disturbance frequently leaves the individual unable to adequately be cared for in the community with a level of safety to themselves or others that is necessary. This unit offers short term, crisis oriented hospitalization for individuals experiencing this dual condition.
The breadth of services, specialty components, and excellent staff assure not only the right level of care, but address of specific needs and concerns. We work to integrate our Christian mission with a sense of accountability, integrity, and compassion for all clients, their families, as well as their caregivers.
