The Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit is a 30-bed facility that provides acute mental health services. Patients are supported and protected in a healing environment during their hospitalization. At all times, safety is our primary concern. We encourage patients to keep their daily routines and actively participate in their own care. A team approach provides consistent quality care.
Individualized patient care is designed by the psychiatric team. Patients are encouraged to participate in establishing goals while hospitalized and progress toward those goals is monitored throughout the hospital stay.
While staying at the Inpatient Psychiatry unit, a patient will be cared for by a variety of staff including:
- Internal Medicine providers
- Social workers
- Occupational & recreational therapists
- Pastoral Care
- Other specialties as needed
For admissions to Inpatient Psychiatry, referring physicians may call Gundersen MedLink at (608) 775-5465 or (800) 336-5465 and ask for the on-call psychiatrist.
