Psychiatric Hospital

On May 25, 2014, my wife, Janice H., passed away at the age of 49, due to complications from a 28 year battle with multiple sclerosis. She had been under the great care of Oak Knoll Healthcare Center for over eleven years. She was treated with the utmost respect and dignity that could ever be expected. Some of the staff went above and beyond to make her life as comfortable as possible. I have to write you this letter to tell you how much my family and myself appreciate what Oak Knoll did for Janice in helping her ”live” at Oak Knoll for eleven years. Thank you for providing a safe and comfortable environment for Janice. Sincerely, Harold C. H. III

By building on the long term care and rehabilitative expertise that exists within the Whittier Health Network, The Whittier Pavilion specializes in meeting the inpatient psychiatric needs of adults while also managing their current medical needs. The Whittier Pavilion offers spacious and modern accommodations, a full meal service, and personalized care that supports well being and comfort.

Our Admissions Department is available 24 hrs./7 days a week to review intakes and admission decisions are generally rendered within 20 minutes.

Each unit provides programming appropriate to patients’ needs and includes groups for substance abuse, grief and loss, coping skills, stress management and exercise, among many others.

Comprehensive nursing assessments are completed along with evaluations by psychiatry, medicine and social work to formulate an individualized treatment plan. The Whittier Pavilion provides on-site hospitalists that provide care for ongoing and acute medical conditions.
