Inpatient Behavioral Health Care
Owensboro Health Regional Hospital can stabilize you or a loved one who experiences a behavioral health crisis, such as suicidal impulses, distressing hallucinations or major depression. Adults benefit from therapy and medication management in our safe, secure 12-bed inpatient unit—one of the few of its kind in the region.
When you need urgent behavioral health services, you may come to the hospital’s Emergency Department. A compassionate professional will assess your needs in a safe environment and help you get the right care.
You also may come to our inpatient treatment program through a referral from your doctor or therapist.
Psychiatric Treatments & Services
If you’re admitted to the hospital, a psychiatrist will diagnose your condition and make personalized recommendations for treatment. Your care plan will include group therapy, individual therapy, medication management, exercise and stress reduction. If necessary, we’ll facilitate family meetings to help your loved ones understand your condition.
Behavioral Health conditions can affect your body, mind, spirit, and relationships. So you’ll get care from a multidisciplinary team—a resource you won’t find at all short-term inpatient facilities. You get access to experienced nurses, social workers, nurse practitioners, and therapists, as well as a chaplain, pharmacist and hospitalist.
Length Of Stay
Your care team will help you determine when you’re ready to leave the hospital. On average, patients stay about three days. Following discharge, we’ll ease your transition to outpatient behavioral health care so you can continue making progress.
Your loved ones may visit from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. through the week, as well as from 2:00 p.m - 3:00 p.m. on the weekends.
