Department of Psychiatry

Acute psychiatric services for adult inpatient care in a 23-bed safe, nurturing therapeutic environment, certified by the New York State Department of Health, the New York State Office for Mental Health (OMH), and The Joint Commission.

The acute care unit provides patients with a healing and therapeutic environment for their treatment. Comprehensive treatment is provided by an interdisciplinary team of psychiatric nurses, clinical social workers, recreation therapists, and board-certified psychiatrists. Assessment for admission is initiated as a transfer, through the Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital Emergency Department or directly by mental health practitioners.
