Our inpatient psychiatry programs are available at UChicago Medicine at Ingalls - Harvey. These therapeutic behavioral health treatment services offer a variety of programs to adolescents, adults and older adults.
Inpatient Psychiatric Hospitalization
Adolescents ages 12-18 (Available at Comer Children's Hospital)
A safe, structured, and therapeutic environment designed to identify and treat counterproductive behaviors and current stressors, while building on an individual’s strengths and supports.
Adults ages 18 to 65
Superior behavioral health treatment including group therapy, medication management, individual and family therapy.
This specialized care program offers treatment in a warm and gentle environment, accommodating the specific needs of older adults struggling with physical, emotional and cognitive challenges.
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.
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) is an evaluation and treatment most commonly used to treat severe mood disorders, including major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder.
Treatments are performed in Hyde Park on an outpatient basis, and at UChicago Medicine Ingalls - Harvey for both inpatient and outpatient appointments.
