Safe, Skilled Care for Those Who Need It

Tour MultiCare’s new psychiatric unit at Auburn Medical Center

There are times when the needs of those with mental health challenges goes beyond the help that can be provided in an outpatient setting. The Adult Behavioral Health unit at MultiCare Auburn Medical Center is here to help, providing a safe and compassionate environment for patients who need hospital-based, acute-need psychiatric care.

How We Help

The 20-bed Adult Behavioral Health unit cares for patients age 18 and over on both a voluntary and involuntary basis. We specialize in treating patients who are experiencing depression, anxiety, thoughts of self harm, psychosis, or other severe mental health disorders.

Treatment provided while patients stay in the unit may include:

  • Counseling: Therapy with one of our psychiatrists helps patients cope with depression, anxiety and other mental health challenges.
  • Medication management: Because many of our patients are on complex medication programs, we offer round-the-clock medication management. This allows us to adjust their medications as needed and prevent medication-related complications.
  • Therapeutic group activities: An active daily schedule of therapeutic group activities, including art, music and movement therapy, helps keep your loved one engaged.

Our care team includes a medical director, psychiatrists, psychiatric ARNP, RNs, mental health technicians, social workers, CNAs, creative arts therapists, occupational therapists and other ancillary services — all with special training in working with patients with serious mental health disorders.

This state-of-the-art unit incoporates many of the latest designs and protocols that will help keep patients and staff safe, while still providing a pleasant and comfortable environment for patients.
