We’ve recently expanded our medical Psychiatry Unit to 18 beds, and we’re in the design phase for an additional expansion up to 24 beds in the near future.

Medical complications that we accommodate include, but are not limited to, diabetes, dialysis, remote telemetry, IV access, complex wounds, catheter care, and fetal monitoring. RNs in our Psychiatry Unit enjoy the full support of providers, management staff, nursing assistants, and social workers located directly onsite.
