Adult Partial Hospitalization Service

The Adult Partial Hospitalization Program of the Department of Psychiatry, a service of Baystate Medical Center, provides short-term intensive psychiatric services for patients ages 18 and older in need of crisis intervention and stabilization. Program participation may function in lieu of inpatient psychiatric treatment, or as a necessary transition after a brief inpatient hospitalization.

The program provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach that includes milieu treatment, individual and group treatment, psychiatric evaluation, medication monitoring, and case management. It is a time-limited, focused approach with emphasis on psycho-education, stabilization and relapse prevention.

We encourage family member involvement. Staff members collaborate closely with outpatient providers in order to ensure continuity of care. The program serves patients with a full range of psychiatric disorders, including, but not limited to:

  • Mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Chemical dependency
  • Dual diagnosis.

Appointments may be arranged through our Central Intake office by calling 413-794-5555 (Baystate Medical Center, Springfield) or 413-773-4444 (Baystate Franklin Medical Center, Greenfield) between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
