Child and adolescent psychiatry unit opens
September 11, 2013
Providence Health & Services has long had a commitment to providing inpatient child and adolescent psychiatric services, serving patients ages 5 through 17. To better serve our community, we have invested in a new inpatient unit at Providence Willamette Falls Medical Center in Oregon City. This unit replaces services previously provided on the Providence Portland Medical Center campus.
This new child and adolescent unit is part of our commitment to care for children at all levels of treatment, working closely with families, schools and agencies to integrate our services in all phases of care. In addition to the inpatient unit, we are adding an outpatient psychiatric clinic with an emphasis on short-term treatment referring the patient back to their primary care provider.
