Partial Hospital Program

To support individuals experiencing acute symptoms of a psychiatric condition, Richmond University Medical Center provides a partial hospitalization program in Staten Island which offers short-term intensive mental health services in a group-based, structured and supportive setting. With care from highly-trained, compassionate professionals, you’ll have the tools needed to stabilize, recover and return to your everyday activities.

Better Outcomes through Personalized Care

All of our care at the partial hospitalization program is customized specifically to your individual needs. This special attention will make your treatment more effective and help alleviate any complications that you are experiencing. Our services are administered by an interdisciplinary team of nurses, social workers and psychiatrists who bring extensive experience and unique perspectives to each patient’s treatment. Our partial hospitalization program uses trauma-informed and evidenced-based practices to help you recover by focusing on the restoration of well-being and the return to optimal functioning.  Alongside your treatment team, you will create a comprehensive treatment plan to address your specific treatment needs.

We also encourage involvement from your family so they have an understanding of your condition and can provide support when needed. The program is conveniently located at The Center for Integrative Behavioral Medicine at 1130 South Avenue, Staten Island, NY, 10314 on the grounds of the Hilton Garden Inn, making it easy for you and your loved ones to attend. Going through this transition can be difficult, but you can rest assured knowing that you will not be alone during the process.
