When a mental health crisis appears, there needs to be an immediate and comprehensive response. At Port St. Lucie Hospital, our crisis intervention team helps patients de-escalate a crisis and return to a place where they feel safe and in control.
We accomplish this goal by creating an individualized treatment plan during your crisis. Our expert team of mental health professionals guide patients through a variety of crisis care treatment modalities. Learn more about each of these treatment options and how they can help you or your loved one through a mental health crisis.
We accept Medicare, most HMOs and PPOs, and can make financial arrangements for self-pay patients.
Because we want to help people in crisis, Port St. Lucie Hospital accepts both voluntary admissions and involuntary admissions through the Baker Act, serving St. Lucie, Martin, and parts of Okeechobee counties. Our fully accredited treatment center screens, evaluates, and admits people brought in voluntarily and through the Baker Act with the goal of quickly and holistically stabilizing their psychiatric health. With involuntary admissions under the Baker Act, we may keep the patient in treatment for up to 72 hours, during which time we will work with them to resolve their mental health crisis.
