UPMC McKeesport provides inpatient behavioral health services for adult and geriatric patients. This 32 bed unit, modeled after and managed by UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital, provides individual, group, and family treatment modalities along with psychopharmacological interventions.
The multidisciplinary team, comprised of physicians, nurses, social workers, and mental health specialists provide the patient-focused care needed to rapidly stabilize the patient in preparation for discharge.
A continuum of care has been recently formalized between the behavioral health inpatient unit at McKeesport and the ambulatory services provided through Mon Yough Community Services Inc.
This relationship between the two facilities has greatly enhanced continuity of care for the patients served at both sites.
