Adult Inpatient COVID-19 Unit

Adult Inpatient: COVID-19 Unit

Pine Rest’s Special Care Unit utilizes a unique design and negative air pressure to create a space well-suited to psychiatric care for adults who are asymptomatic or experiencing mild symptoms of COVID-19 illness. Physical symptoms are monitored closely to make sure each patient is at the right level of care.

The unit consists of four independent, self-contained pods. The first eight-bed adult psychiatric pod opened in December 2020. Two additional eight-bed, adult psychiatric pods are also underway with plans to open in 2021.

For an adult struggling with depression, stress, anxiety or another mental health condition, the decision to seek help can be a difficult one. Our adult inpatient units are tailored specifically to meet the needs of adults whose symptoms require 24/7 care in a setting that provides safety and security during crisis stabilization.

Our collaborative multidisciplinary team provides group-based programming, oversight by board-certified psychiatrists and partnership with outside providers to develop a treatment plan that best suits each individual’s needs. After care plans are designed to continue the healing process. The average length of inpatient stay is 8 to 10 days.


The adult Special Care Unit is located in the Cedar wing of the Van Andel Center (Building E) on the Pine Rest campus.
