Inpatient Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

At Emory University Hospital at Wesley Woods, we provide compassionate and caring inpatient treatment services to individuals who are experiencing acute distress associated with behavioral health diagnoses.

Prospective patients and/or their families can call 404-728-6222 to be screened by our licensed behavioral health evaluators to determine if the individual’s signs and symptoms meet insurance guidelines for inpatient level of care.  Examples of acute signs and symptoms include, but are not limited, to the following:

Depressed or Manic Mood

Paranoid/Suspicious Behaviors
Medication Non-compliance
Suicidal or Homicidal Thoughts

Our comprehensive treatment services include expert psychiatric evaluation and treatment, skillful nursing assessment and care, multidisciplinary therapeutic approaches, and coordination of care for patients and their families after hospitalization.

Our commitment to patient-and-family centered care remains our focus and guidepost in providing these comprehensive services for our patients. Additionally, we are committed to providing timely communication with our referral sources during each patient’s stay and at the time of discharge.

For individuals who do not meet insurance guidelines for inpatient treatment, our behavioral health evaluators will help identify which of our outpatient programs can help support the prospective patient and their family.

*Prospective patients who have acute, unstable medical conditions may not meet the criteria for active participation in our treatment program.
