Neuropsychiatric hospital opens medical center to help psychiatric patients with complex medical and neurological conditions
South Bend, Indiana- NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals, LLC (“NPH”) is pleased to announce the development of a new location opening in Conroe, Texas. The hospital will serve patients with a combination of complex psychiatric disorders and medical and neurological conditions in the greater Houston area.
“I am happy to announce our expansion in the Conroe area, which will serve the greater Houston northern metropolitan communities,” said NPH’s Founder and Chairman, Cameron Gilbert, PhD. “Our unique patients require full time treatment from both psychiatry and internal medicine and belong to an excessively growing population of patients with little or no treatment options.”
NeuroPsychiatric Hospital patients are people who have not been able to be treated appropriately at a traditional medical hospital due to severe psychiatric impairments that are coupled with a medical issue. Likewise, these patients are often excluded from receiving care at a traditional psychiatric hospital due to the presence of complex medical and/or medical disorders, such as an infectious disease or renal failure.
One example of a NeuroPsychiatric Hospital patient would be a 55 year-old patient who is acutely psychotic and a danger to self and others and also has wounds, uncontrolled diabetes and AIDS. Another example would be a 20-year-old who is autistic and also suffers from extreme mood swings and violent outbursts.
“Most NPH patients go to local emergency rooms for treatment, which doesn’t always offer any real treatment or solution for the patient or family,” said Dr. Cameron Gilbert. “Other patients come from nursing homes, group homes, traditional psychiatric hospitals, and law enforcement. All referrals are community-based and not physician dependent; our hospitals serve as a safety net for local communities.”
“NeuroPsychiatric is proud to serve the communities in the surrounding Houston area,” said Dr. Gilbert. “The expansion will create hundreds of local jobs and supply communities with dedicated staff and expert clinical care. Our Conroe hospital will complement our Clear Lake Houston hospital opening in just a few months (Medical Behavioral Hospital of Clear Lake).”
NPH plans to expand throughout the U.S. to provide state-of-the-art patient care for individuals suffering from complex medical and behavioral conditions.
