EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Transitions, a new partial hospitalization program in the Behavioral Health Department at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, will provide an alternative to hospitalization for adults whose psychiatric illness is impairing their ability to function successfully in their lives, while traditional outpatient therapy services are not sufficient to meet their needs.
“We developed this level of care to meet the increasing demand for psychiatric services as we continue to face limited resources,” says Karlene Phillips, director of Inpatient Behavioral Health Services. “Our goal is to provide evidenced-based care in the least restrictive setting to meet the needs of the patient. An interim level of care between hospitalization and traditional outpatient services creates the opportunity to decrease length of stay or avoid hospitalization, increasing bed availability for patients with the most acute needs.”
The program team includes board-certified psychiatrists, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, licensed psychotherapists and activity therapists.
