Mental Health at Forbes Hospital

Everyone experiences emotional difficulties in their lives.  However, for some, these pressures can be overwhelming.  The Psychiatric Unit at Forbes Hospital offers patients an opportunity to discover effective ways to regain control of their lives while sharing their experiences with people much like themselves in a comfortable, therapeutic setting.

This 40-bed inpatient, short-term unit offers comprehensive individualized care and professional treatment.  The home-like atmosphere is enhanced by dining and lounge areas, a kitchen, laundry facilities and a recreational/ occupational therapy area.

With the nurses' station located at the center of the unit's two halls, the staff is afforded easy patient access to provide the best possible care.  Room assignments are based on individual patient needs.

The unit is locked at all times.  To afford all patients protection and privacy, no one is permitted on the unit without clearance from a member of the nursing staff.
