Partial Hospitalization Program

The Partial Hospitalization Program at Berkshire Medical Center provides an intensive, structured step-down from, or alternative to inpatient hospitalization. The program is designed for individuals experiencing acute psychiatric symptoms who do not require the 24-hour care of an inpatient unit. This five-day per week program provides individuals and their families with the opportunity to manage crises, identify and enhance strengths and establish and maintain self-determined goals.

This alternative to hospitalization follows a learning and growth model rather than a traditional health/illness approach. The group format provides ongoing opportunity to support and foster responsible action.

The program operates Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and is located on the first floor of the Warriner Building at the Berkshire Medical Center. Admission to the program can be made on a referral basis. Most health insurers cover this service, but you should check with your insurer for details on coverage.
