Interdisciplinary Team Approach Makes a Difference
Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Services at Florida Medical Center - a campus of North Shore treat adults (18 years and older) with a variety of mental health concerns.
We have inpatient and outpatient care, including Mood Disorder Unit, Thought Disorder Unit, separate Psychiatric Emergency Room and dedicated Senior Behavioral Health Unit. A team of psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, social workers, mental health counselors, behavioral health technicians and other professionals deliver quality care to meet patients’ individual needs. Each of our units is designed for patients with a specific problem.
Inpatient Services for Acute Stabilization
Our goal is to help restore the maximum amount of independence and functional capacity of each patient experiencing emotional distress. The inpatient treatment team develops a treatment plan in conjunction with the patient and family. Treatment options include individual, family, and group therapies as well as activity and music therapy. Patients receive medication stabilization, discharge planning, and are connected to necessary resources in the community upon discharge.
Senior Behavioral Health Services
This program provides individualized care in a warm, supportive atmosphere. Our staff works with the patient, family and other health professionals to develop a course of treatment to help meet the patient’s needs. Treatment includes meetings with psychiatrists, physicians and group therapists to assist with emotional, mental, physical and medication needs.
Psychiatric Emergency Room
Our emergency department psychiatric professionals are dedicated to assisting those in need of mental health services. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, our team assesses each patient’s needs and helps find the most appropriate treatment, whether it is providing information, admission or a referral. The Psychiatric Emergency Department is located within the main hospital emergency department, on the south side of the hospital.
