Our treatment philosophy integrates state-of-the-art neurobiological knowledge with sophisticated psychotherapeutic techniques for optimal patient care. We believe in treating you with the utmost dignity and respect and in taking an interdisciplinary approach to your well-being.
Our program sees the full spectrum of psychiatric disorders, including:
Our 24-bed locked unit receives referrals from multiple sources, such as the Acute Psychiatric Service, our outpatient clinicians and affiliated staff, and medical surgical units within Mass General. We also receive referrals from throughout New England and beyond.
One reason we receive so many referrals is our ability to treat psychiatric patients who are also medically ill. We are located on Mass General’s main campus and have 24/7 access to many of the world's experts in virtually every medical and surgical specialty and subspecialty.
We specialize in managing patients with difficult-to-treat conditions. For example, we are one of the few programs that can safely administer electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in patients with co-existing medical problems, such as those affecting the heart.
