Mental Health Hospital Services

Hospital Services

There are occasions when our best recommendation and course of action for a person's mental health is to admit them to the hospital for more focused, intensive treatment. For those situations, St. Luke's has three units dedicated to mental health treatment - for children and adolescents, adults and older adult patients.

Child/Adolescent Unit
This secure center provides treatment for children (ages 6-12) and adolescents (ages 13-18). Both programs are family-centered and designed to help children and adolescents who have serious behavioral problems, emotional disorders or adjustment difficulties. Our focus is to empower families, manage behavior and teach new skills.

Adult Unit
This secure unit provides a highly structured and protective environment for adult patients suffering from acute emotional crisis and who require frequent monitoring and supportive attention.

Partial Hospitalization

St. Luke's partial hospitalization program provides day services for patients with emotional difficulties and/or mental illnesses. It's designed to help with the transition from the hospital to home, or to avoid hospitalization altogether. Individuals learn how to deal with problems by solving them together in groups, practicing their plan of action through role-playing, going home to follow through and returning the next day to share their success or make a new plan of action.

Some of the group settings individuals participate in include:

  • Group therapy
  • Goal setting group
  • Coping skills group
  • Assertiveness group
  • Leisure education group
  • Weekend planning and weekend groups
