Access Center

Our Access Center provides an assessment of your presenting problem(s) and identifies the appropriate level and type of care you need. In the event that acute inpatient hospitalization is required, our access counselors will help patients and families through the process.

The access counselor clarifies what to bring for hospitalization, describes the process, works to verify payer source and helps with pre-certification when necessary. During times of intense stress and difficulty, the counselor will help in getting the patient admitted to the hospital. In the event another level of service is needed, the counselor will help connect you with the appropriate type of care.

Acute Inpatient Hospitalization

Acute inpatient care and services are provided to individuals experiencing a crisis in their lives that has resulted in their inability to function successfully on a daily basis. The person may be a danger to him/herself or find it difficult to control angry and aggressive impulses. In some cases, the inability to function adequately may be due to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, substance use or depression and related disorders.

We recognize that being away from home and familiar surroundings can be difficult, so we work with the patient, family and other support systems to plan successfully for discharge and follow-up care.
