The Center for Interventional Psychiatry is part of the UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital. Our team of professionals provides specialized services to more than 220 patients each year.
We are the largest provider of ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) services in the tri-state area, and the one of only a few providers of TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) in the Pittsburgh region.
While our services are not new, the Center for Interventional Psychiatry builds upon the foundation of UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital's history as one of the largest behavioral health care providers affiliated with an academic medical center in the country. This academic affiliation provides our faculty with access to not only the newest innovations in patient care, but also the opportunity to participate in research trials. Our physicians are board certified clinicians, educators, and respected leaders in their field.
Our clinical staff have more than 30 years' experience in the field of interventional psychiatry, and we treat every patient with a team approach. Your individual case will be managed by one of our many psychiatrists and will include experienced professionals during every step of treatment.
Our care is coordinated through outpatient psychiatric services at UPMC, but we also care for patients who are hospitalized and in need of our services.
In addition to our clinical services, we are committed to training the next generation of interventional psychiatric professionals. Our program provides specialized, certified training in ECT to psychiatric service providers across the world through a visiting ECT Fellowship Program four times a year.
