We are committed to serving the needs of our neighbors.

Our expanded Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at Bryn Mawr Hospital provides more well-rounded patient support. By doubling the number of beds and adding noise-cancelling floors and ceilings, ambient music and circadian lighting, we've created safe, healing rooms for treatment. Additional spaces designated for dining, relaxation and family time will further complete the inpatient experience. Our highest priority with this expansion is to serve our neighbors better— because to us, behavioral healthcare requires dedicated human care.

Treatment team

The treatment team consists of board-certified psychiatrists and internists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, mental health technicians, and licensed social workers. With permission, a patient's family physician is advised of the patient's admission and included in the discharge planning.


Treatment begins with comprehensive psychiatric and physical evaluations. Patients meet daily with a member of their treatment team to develop a personalized program. A typical day in treatment consists of therapy groups, community meetings with peers, and meeting with a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner for medication management and education. Some patients may be referred for electroconvulsive therapy, which is conveniently provided onsite.

Patients are encouraged to participate in a variety of treatments including:

  • Evidence-based therapies (including mindfulness, guided meditation, and coping skills groups)
  • Interactive activities (including art, music, and recreation)
  • Exercise time in onsite gym
  • Pet therapy
  • Spiritual support
  • Family meetings
  • Customized aftercare planning with social worker to ensure smooth transition to the next level of care

A referral for evaluation and possible admission can be made by calling 1.888.CARE.898 (227.3898). Treatment at our inpatient psychiatric unit is covered by most insurance plans. Our intake coordinators will provide specific information about reimbursement issues.
