Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Care
We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of mental, behavioral and developmental disorders in children and adolescents. Our interdisciplinary team includes board-certified child psychiatrists – medical doctors with at least three years of residency training in general psychiatry and an additional two years in child psychiatry – as well as some of the area's leading licensed psychologists, psychiatric social workers, experienced psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists and other professionals as needed.
Our hospital team is committed to providing compassionate and expert care for children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral health challenges. Inpatient child and adolescent psychiatric services are provided at our Marillac Campus. Our services include inpatient and partial-hospital acute crisis evaluation and management services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Admission screenings by a qualified mental health professional are available in person. Referring providers can obtain consultation with a physician by phone.
