Adult Inpatient Hospitalization

The dedicated multi-disciplinary team at Good Samaritan Hospital has been successfully providing adult psychiatric inpatient services to the Silicon Valley community since 1975. We provide a safe, supportive environment for adult patients with severe or life-threatening psychiatric problems, including:

  • Major depression
  • Bipolar illness
  • Dual diagnosis
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Schizophrenia

Our goal is to provide quality care to prevent, support, and treat mental, emotional, and behavioral conditions and to return the patient to his or her home and community as soon as possible. With an emphasis on a flexible continuum of care, patients are thoroughly evaluated and placed in the least restrictive, most cost-effective, and most clinically appropriate setting while they are treated. Our multi-disciplinary staff is comprised of psychiatrists, addictionologists, internists, registered nurses, licensed clinical social workers, licensed masters level mental health therapists, chemical dependency counselors, licensed vocational nurses, and licensed psychiatric technicians.

Patients will have the opportunity to engage in group therapy, occupational therapy, coping skill building, exercise groups, dual diagnosis groups and meet individually with a psychiatrist for medication management. The social work team will assist the patient and family in arranging the appropriate next step after discharge.
