Full hospitalization for adults

Mercy Hospital's Adult Mental Health Inpatient Unit serves as an intensive inpatient psychiatric setting for adults (ages 18 and older).

All patients have a primary mental health diagnosis and are experiencing an acute exacerbation of psychiatric symptoms that interferes with their ability to carry out activities of daily living. The unit accepts admissions facilitated by Assessment and Referral, direct admissions, medically stabilized transfers from the hospital's medical units and outpatients.

Patients receive around-the-clock care in a hospital setting while learning how to manage their illnesses. The attending psychiatrist directs the care team, which may include psychologists, registered nurses, behavioral health associates, program specialists, and program therapists.

Integrated patient care is accomplished through collaboration with other hospital services, such as pharmacy, nutritional services, laboratory, pastoral care and rehabilitation services.

To contact the Adult Mental Health Inpatient Unit, located on the fifth floor in the east tower of the hospital (5 East), call 763-236-8500.

Adult partial hospital program

Mercy's Adult Partial Hospital Program offers intensive mental health services for adults. The program is a less restrictive alternative to inpatient care for adults who need more than weekly outpatient therapy. It also assists patients who are ready to transfer from an inpatient unit to home.

Patients receive therapeutic services five days a week during the day, and return home in the evenings and on weekends. Patients attend the Adult Partial Hospital Program an average of two to three weeks. Structured programming and treatment by a psychiatrist and mental health professionals are provided in a safe, comfortable environment.

Participants attend the program from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

A referral is needed for admission to the Adult Partial Hospital Program. Psychiatrists, family practitioners, therapists or county mental health agencies can call 763-236-7861 for information or to arrange an admission.

The Adult Mental Health Outpatient Program (AMHOP) at Mercy Hospital assists clients in learning to cope with obstacles that they are experiencing in daily life. Flexible scheduling allows gradual transitions back into the community after completing more intensive treatment.

The primary goal is to assist adults in overcoming obstacles that interfere with daily living, using assessment, treatment and structure to stabilize and improve their mental health.

The outpatient program offers customized services and flexible scheduling of three hours a day, one to five days a week. The frequency and length of treatment is based on individual needs. Most clients attend one to three times per week for an average of three months.

Most health insurance plans provide reimbursement for outpatient mental health treatment. Hospital staff will confirm eligibility and coverage before the program is started.

Participants are referred to the Adult Mental Health Outpatient Program by psychiatrists, family practitioners, therapists, county agencies, clergy, other hospitals, family members or by self-referral.

Intake appointments are scheduled, Monday through Friday, by calling 763-236-8700.
