Adult Partial Hospitalization Service
The Adult Partial Hospitalization Program of the Department of Psychiatry 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 serves patients with a full range of psychiatric disorders.
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.
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.
