Electroconvulsive Therapy Service
The Electroconvulsive Therapy Service (ECT) accepts patient referrals from community providers and other hospitals. The service includes a comprehensive evaluation of the patient to determine appropriateness for ECT. Patients and their families receive information about the ECT procedure. ECT is performed by an experienced team of psychiatrists, anesthesiologists and nurses.
After the ECT course is completed, recommendations for further care are made, including advice about continuation therapy with psychotropic medications or maintenance ECT.
Patients receiving outpatient ECT wil continue to be followed by their referring psychiatrist or medical provider.
