About The Good Samaritan Behavioral Health Inpatient Program
Good Samaritan Behavioral Health Inpatient Program is Good Samaritan Hospital’s comprehensive, 29-bed inpatient psychiatric unit. Here we care for adult patients whose primary diagnosis is mental illness.
Many of our patients come through the emergency room, where they are evaluated by licensed therapists and medically stabilized before being admitted to the inpatient unit.
Good Samaritan Behavioral Health Service is a short-term unit; the average length of stay is five days. However, 30 percent of our patients suffer from chronic mental illness and have previously spent time in our unit or in another hospital’s psychiatric unit. We coordinate with other area hospitals and community mental health resources to determine the best course of treatment for these patients.
Our unit is comprised of three areas:
- A Crisis Stabilization Unit
- A Geriatric Psychiatric Unit
- A Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)
Our multidisciplinary staff—which includes social workers, counselors, occupational and recreational therapists, psychiatric nurses, and psychiatrists—works to stabilize and treat patients in all three areas. We’re also a teaching facility, so we have medical students and psychiatric residents from Wright State University with us.
We work with patients in many ways, including these inpatient services:
- Medication management
- Individual, family, and group therapy
- Case management
- Substance abuse assessment
- Probate services (for court-ordered patients)
Inpatient services are located at the Good Samaritan Hospital main campus
