An inpatient hospital stay is the most intensive level of mental healthcare. If you or a family member are suffering from a severe mental health issue, are having acute psychiatric symptoms, are having thoughts of hurting yourself or others, or are finding that a less intensive program is not working well enough, a short-term inpatient stay may be helpful.
At Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation, we offer inpatient mental healthcare at California Pacific Medical Center, a facility that is safe and secure, and is staffed with compassionate health professionals who provide patients with structure and consistency, and treatment that is focused on solving problems and helping you return to good mental health.
Once admitted to one of our facilities, you’ll receive a thorough mental and physical health evaluation, using tools similar to those offered to outpatients. Your doctor will then work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan, which may include a variety of types of therapeutic counseling, including family, group or individual sessions. We will also work with your family members to help them understand your condition and what they can do to help.
In the Sutter Health network, we understand that being hospitalized for a mental health condition can be a frightening prospect for the patient and his or her family members. Please be assured that our goal is to stabilize your condition and help you move to a less intensive level of care as soon as possible to continue your treatment. We want to help you resume your role in the community and in your family, and continue with a lifetime of good mental health.
