Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit
The Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit is located at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital, 418 North Main Street, Penn Yan. The secure, 10-bed inpatient unit provides a safe and professional setting for adult patients, and assists patients in managing their acute psychiatric needs. A multi-disciplinary treatment team includes psychiatric nurses, social workers, counselors, and a psychiatrist, who assist patients in their stabilization, treatment and discharge planning to return to the community.
The unit consists of quiet areas for individual and group therapy sessions, family conferences, a communal dining area, and therapeutic activities.
Patients are considered an active part of their treatment and discharge planning. Meetings with the patient, their family and members of the treatment team help to assure that safe and reasonable plans are in place to offer patients continued success in their aftercare.
