Behavioral Emergency Department

Behavioral and Mental Health Services

Our Emergency Department has separate entrance, waiting, and treatment areas for behavioral patients.  Furthermore, the layout separates adult from pediatric behavioral patients to provide more individualized/specific care. The Behavioral Emergency Department consists of 30 private exam rooms, separated by walls instead of curtains. The rooms are larger, so patients and their families will be more comfortable. The added space also allows the latest technology to be placed at the bedside.
