Center for Psychiatry (CFP) of the Winter Haven Hospital, Inc. provides psychiatric hospitalization and treatment in a comfortable lake front setting for up to 30 adults, ages 18 and above. Board certified Psychiatrists lead an interdisciplinary treatment team in the provision of comprehensive care. The program uses a treatment team approach with multi-disciplinary attendance including the attending psychiatrist, nursing team, clinical service team, and utilization management to determine the best approach for engaging the patient in achieving treatment goals and improving functioning at home as well as in the community upon discharge. The treatment team addresses psychiatric behavioral disorders, co-occurring substance use disorders, and medical needs that may be affecting the patient. Discharge planning is formulated using the treatment team approach to make appointments for individualized patient care needs when discharging back to the community setting.

Patients may be directly referred to the BayCare Patient Placement Center from a hospital setting outside of BayCare or be assessed in the Emergency Department to determine necessity for inpatient care. Once admitted they receive treatment services in semi-private rooms in a secure setting that includes nursing care, psychiatric evaluation, medication management, and therapeutic activities which include individual, group, and family meetings for safety planning, discharge planning, and outpatient needs. The length of stay depends on each patient’s individual needs with an average length of stay of 3-7 days.
