Inpatient Acute Psychiatric Care

Emory University Hospital at Wesley Woods features inpatient geriatric and adult psychiatric services.  Our inpatient units serve individuals experiencing acute mental health crisis, who cannot be successfully treated outside the hospital setting. 

We utilize best practices for the treatment of psychiatric diagnoses, including mood and psychotic disorders. The goals of our inpatient care include: diagnostic assessment, initial treatment and crisis stabilization, allowing the patient to safely transition from inpatient care back to a community setting.

Both geriatric and adult psychiatric units deliver highly individualized treatment services that are patient- and family-centered to meet the unique needs of each individual patient.

To request admission, please call 404-728-6222.  Our Behavioral Health Evaluators require clinical information, demographics and insurance information to complete the admission referral. All insurances will be verified prior to admission.
