The acute care unit at Porter Adventist Hospital provides psychiatric hospitalization for adult patients with severe mental health conditions such as: schizophrenia, major depression and anxiety disorders.
Hospitalization includes an active treatment program utilizing behavioral therapy groups, occupational and recreational therapy groups, nursing groups, and one-on-one counseling. Each patient has a social worker who coordinates care, and a psychiatrist who regularly consults on medication and all aspects of their care. The average length of stay for most patients is five to six days, although, this may vary depending upon medical needs.
Porter Adventist Hospital is a TOBACCO-FREE CAMPUS. There is no smoking or use of other tobacco products (chewing, dipping, etc.) on this unit or anywhere else on the hospital campus. For our patients who do smoke we will provide nicotine patches or gum to help with this transition.
