On behalf of our psychiatric, medical and professional staff, we would like to personally welcome you to NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals (NPH), a new and innovative care model offered in Northern and Central Indiana.
NPH is a system of acute psychiatric hospitals with an innovative approach to neuropsychiatric care for the geriatric and adult population. Unlike hospitals who are solely psychiatric-based, NPH utilizes an interdisciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychologists and medical doctors. This team works collaboratively to evaluate chronic behavioral and emotional disorders that may have a psychiatric, neurological or medical pathogenesis.
This model was borne out of the desire to provide the most comprehensive care possible to adult and geriatric patients with compromised cognitive or behavioral statuses who are also often medically and/or neurologically compromised. Many of our patients have been in and out of other acute settings, being continually treated for the symptomatology without a thorough understanding of the etiology. This population can experience metabolic changes, synergistic reactions due to polypharmacy, and have multiple underlying medical diagnoses that cause and/or exacerbate cognitive and behavioral issues. It is for that reason that NPH is intentionally thorough with each patient, often requiring more intensive and specialized services and greater time to reconstitute than seen in typical acute care settings. We strive to heal both the body and the mind.
When you refer to NPH, you leave the care of your patient in our hands. We feel it is our responsibility and obligation to maintain the same high level of care that you are continually providing and the patient is accustomed to receiving. Each of our hospitals offer a safe and comforting environment. Our state-of-the-art facilities are enhanced by true concierge care through our committed clinical and non-clinical staff.
