Behavioral Health

The Geriatric Psychiatry Program

Saint Anne’s Hospital behavioral health services program is dedicated to helping adults and adolescents by providing a full range of inpatient and outpatient treatment options. Our comprehensive services focus on treating the individual to help them restore balance and a sense of well-being in their lives.

The general hospital setting also offers many other advantages toward a complete plan of care and makes it possible to address any medical problems that may accompany a patient’s mental health.

Our behavioral health services include:

Geriatric Psychiatry Inpatient Program

Saint Anne’s Geriatric Psychiatry Program is a comprehensive inpatient program designed to meet the unique medical, psychiatric and emotional needs of older adults in a specialized, safe and confidential setting.

The Geriatric Psychiatry Program provides comprehensive treatment. It offers a comforting, structured environment with daily programming and a multidisciplinary team approach to care, which includes psychiatrists, social workers, occupational therapy, physical therapy and specialized nurses.

The program offers two secure locations: a 16-bed unit at Saint Anne's Hospital, Fall River, Massachusetts; and a 15-bed unit at New England Sinai Hospital in Stoughton, Massachusetts.

Center for Behavioral Medicine Outpatient Program

The Center for Behavioral Medicine at Saint Anne's Hospital provides short-term intensive treatment for people over the age of 45 who are experiencing psychiatric problems such as depression, anxiety, grief, stress and memory problems. Our programs allow people to remain at home while receiving treatment.

At our Center for Behavioral Medicine, patients are cared for by an interdisciplinary team of health care professionals, including a psychiatrist, social workers, nurses and occupational therapists, all specializing in geriatric care. Two programs are offered to meet our patients’ needs:

  • The Partial Hospital Program offers intensive outpatient services, including a structured group program, case management services and medication management. The Partial Hospital Program is a Monday through Friday program from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

  • Our Intensive Outpatient Program provides a full range of services three days per week, three hours per day. Services include medication management, elder services, discharge and aftercare planning, and individual, couples, group and family counseling.
