Swedish Edmonds offers a partial hospitalization program (PHP) for patients who need acute care, but who may not need full hospitalization.
This short-term, intensive treatment program:
- Helps prevent inpatient hospitalization
- Provides transition from inpatient care to reduce the duration or frequency of inpatient stays
- Provides more intensive treatment when previous attempts in outpatient settings have failed to stabilize the patient’s condition
Hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with group and individual services between 8:45 a.m. and 3:15 p.m., providing about 20 hours of treatment each week. Lunches are provided. Treatment duration varies depending on the individual patient’s needs, with the average treatment lasting between five and 15 days.
PHP services are intended to supplement, not replace, primary outpatient treatment. PHP staff will work in conjunction with primary providers during a patient’s treatment. Many private health insurance companies will cover all or part of mental health treatments. For more information, please call 425-640-4098.
Our specialized staff includes board-certified physicians, nurses and other professionals who are experienced in treating various behavioral-health problems with compassion and respect. Our treatment programs aim to stabilize a patient's illness, maintain the patient's personal and environmental safety, maximize functioning and promote community support and regular follow-up treatment.
Inpatient care is available on a voluntary or involuntary basis to patients who are between the ages of 18 to 64. This level of care is for patients with an acute illness, for a relatively short period of time or until the patient's condition is stabilized.
Patients are involved in treatment decisions. When the patient is discharged from the hospital, follow-up by the patient's family physician or therapist is facilitated.
