Partial Hospital Program

Many individuals benefit from intensive psychiatric treatment, but don’t require constant, 24-hour inpatient monitoring.

At Our Lady of Fatima Hospital, we’ve created a program that helps people get the care they need and still return to their own homes at night. Our Partial Hospital program draws on the support and expertise of one of the region’s leading psychiatric programs - St. Joseph Health Services - and it follows our long-standing tradition of close, personal care.

Many patients face social, interpersonal, and emotional challenges daily. Our program is designed to be a place where you can deal with these issues and find the support, care, and professional advice or assistance you need.

A Timeless Setting

Participants in the Partial Hospital program can enjoy our spacious, newly renovated facilities. Our group room, library, staff offices and medical treatment suites are located in Marian Hall on the Our Lady of Fatima campus.

A Staff That Cares

Our staff is an essential part of our strong tradition of community involvement and personal care. Working as a team, our multi-disciplinary experts will design an individualized program around your needs.

These professionals include a board-certified psychiatrist, licensed social workers, occupational and recreational therapists, clinical interns and community professionals who share their expertise in meditative practice, yoga, NA, AA, coping skills, etc. in an effort to most fully serve our patients.
