Palmetto Health has been offering help and hope for young patients and their families for decades through inpatient and outpatient treatment.

Our inpatient treatment program provides 24-hour medically supervised treatment in a therapeutic environment for children 5–18 who have reached crisis stages. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, the treatment team works with each patient and family to identify problems and develop a treatment plan. Some of the treatment components include:
During the school year, our licensed teachers provide educational assistance two hours per day. Patients work on assignments obtained from their own school in order to minimize the impact of their hospitalization on their academic progress.
The Child and Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program follows a Monday-Friday daytime schedule, combining the intensity and structure of an inpatient hospital setting with the flexibility of returning home in the evenings and on weekends. Patients are seen by the psychiatrist daily and participate in the same groups and activities provided for those who are inpatient.
