Hialeah Hospital Opens Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit


Hialeah Hospital celebrates the opening of its new Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit. The Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit at Hialeah Hospital offers comprehensive psychiatric inpatient services for adults and specializes in the treatment of individuals with emotional disturbances, including depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety. The unit admits patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and has 12 beds.

“Patients heal better in a compassionate and comfortable environment,” said Ben A. Rodriguez, Chief Executive Officer at Hialeah Hospital. “We have taken the proper measures to ensure that our Behavioral Health Unit provides a welcoming atmosphere for individuals seeking high quality mental health services.”

Our goal is to provide each patient that comes to Hialeah Hospital with individualized, comprehensive care from a bilingual (Spanish and English) interdisciplinary team, which consists of psychiatrists, nurses, mental health technicians, social workers, dieticians and occupational therapists.

Hialeah Hospital offers a wide variety of therapies. Some patients may benefit from “talking therapies” such as anger and stress management, coping skills, goal setting and grief resolution, while others may benefit from non-verbal music therapy, arts and crafts therapy, recreational therapy and occupational therapy. Hialeah Hospital’s adjunctive therapists are trained to offer individual counseling or group therapy. Patients may participate in these as part of their treatment plan.

A multidisciplinary team led by a psychiatrist discusses various treatment options with patients based on their diagnosis. Evaluation and treatment can be a positive first step toward a healthier and more productive life. Hialeah Hospital strives to provide the best and most personalized service to patients and their family members during and after their hospital. Each patient will have a comprehensive discharge planning session with the behavioral health team prior to discharge.
