Acute Inpatient Care Program

Acute inpatient hospitalization occurs only with a physician's order for conditions that cannot be safely or effectively treated on an outpatient basis. It is the most intensive level of care offered, providing 24-hour skilled nursing observation and care; daily interventions and oversight by a psychiatrist; and intensive, highly coordinated treatment by a physician-led team of mental health professionals. Inpatient hospitalization is always short-term and designed to quickly stabilize the most serious symptoms to allow a quick transition to less intensive levels of care.

Fremont Hospital offers acute inpatient care for adults and adolescents ages 12-17. Dual Diagnosis programs are available for adults and adolescents with a secondary chemical dependency diagnosis.
