Inpatient Psychiatric Care
Our inpatient psychiatry programs are available at UChicago Medicine at Ingalls - Harvey and UChicago Medicine in Hyde Park. These therapeutic behavioral health treatment services offer a variety of programs to adolescents, adults and older adults.
Patients who are hospitalized for a medical or surgical illness frequently experience emotional distress. This distress can add significantly to a patient's illness and impede their recovery. Additionally, patients with pre-existing psychiatric illness may experience increased challenges during an acute illness.
Our consult-liaison psychiatry service provides bedside evaluation and management of all medically ill hospitalized patients at the request of their primary physicians. Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of psychiatrists with certification in psychosomatic medicine, residents, medical students and social workers.
