Psychiatric Hospital

Dear Leo: I am writing on behalf of my father, Normand C. and our family. As you know we spoke shortly after my father fractured his hip and underwent surgery. It was a difficult time for us especially my mother. The staff at Hannah Duston was outstanding. Your administrator, Chris Olenio, went out of his way to make my father comfortable and our family welcome. He was willing to assist with even our most minor request. My mother wanted to particularly thank Brian, the physical therapist, and Ted, one of his nurses. Brian was extremely understanding of my father’s situation and condition. Ted promptly recognized the crisis that my father was going through and assisted him in getting him to the hospital for appropriate care. Our whole family wanted me to thank you and your staff at Hannah Duston. You and your facility made a big difference in my father’s care and my family’s peace of mind. Very truly yours, Daniel T. C.

Acute Inpatient Adult & Geropsychiatric Care

 

Our Mission is to provide patient-focused, interdisciplinary behavioral healthcare, by recognizing the inherent dignity of each person, while ensuring the highest level of care and professionalism in all relationships with patients, families and other caregivers.

The Whittier Pavilion is the newest addition to the continuum of care within the Whittier Health Network, a family owned and operated healthcare system that has provided outstanding hospital and community services since 1982.

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. Those in need of inpatient, acute psychiatric care may be accommodated on an Adult or Geropsychiatric unit based on their needs. 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.

In addition to the comprehensive multidisciplinary assessment and treatment planning at The Whittier Pavilion, a wide range of therapeutic modalities and services are also incorporated into the care plan.
