Psychiatric Hospital

A freestanding psychiatric hospital is a specialized hospital where people who require
inpatient treatment may be admitted as inpatients. A typical freestanding psychiatric
hospital will have multiple units within the facility, and these units are often specialized
for particular age, groups or particular types of treatment. Which unit of patient is
admitted to might also depend upon how acute or serious their situation is. Many
freestanding psychiatric hospitals will also offer rucked outpatient programs such as
partial hospitalization programs or intensive outpatient programs.
