Saint Vincent Hospital 814.452.5555

Saint Vincent has the area’s longest running inpatient Behavioral Services program, which offers treatment in a safe and caring environment under a doctor's supervision. Sometimes, it is necessary to seek inpatient care when problems make daily living difficult. The inpatient unit is not a substitute for living at home. It is for people who choose to come in for treatment and will eventually return home.

At Saint Vincent, your caretakers work as a treatment team. This team includes a psychiatrist, nursing staff, inpatient therapist/social worker, recreational therapist and other professionals if necessary, such as dietitians, counselors, psychologists and occupational therapists. The treatment team works with the patient's existing support system and identifies additional sources of support when needed.

Saint Vincent's Inpatient Adult Behavioral Unit is located at 232 West 25 Street in Erie, Pa. To schedule an appointment or for more information, please call 814-452-5555 or toll free 1-888-950-9090.
