Newport Hospital is now offering a new behavioral health outpatient program, the Adult Partial Hospitalization Program, for adults who need structured support to handle their life circumstances but do not need hospitalization.
Following a medical and psychological assessment, each patient has a structured treatment environment on the Newport Hospital campus during the day but returns to his or her home at night and on weekends. Each patient has an individualized treatment plan, from three days to two weeks in duration, depending on that patient’s needs.
Led by a psychologist, a psychiatrist and a social worker, the Adult Partial Hospitalization Program is covered by most health insurance plans. For more information, call 845-1910.
Newport Hospital was founded in 1873 and is Newport County’s only acute care hospital.
