The Partial Hospitalization Program at Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital serves adult patients with serious mental health conditions who need more intensive care but can maintain safety in an open setting. The Partial Hospitalization Program is a structured day program that provides several hours of therapy and skill building groups each day, with patients going back home each night. Patients in the program meet Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Similar to the inpatient program at Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital, the Partial Hospitalization Program follows the recovery model incorporating components such as:
- Coping skills
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Skill building and psychoeducation
- Relapse prevention
Patients in the Partial Hospitalization Program will see a psychiatrist two or three times per week, and have daily interactions with a multidisciplinary team of psychotherapists, psychiatric nurses, and occupational or recreational therapists.
The length of time patients are in Partial Hospitalization Program varies, and is decided between a patient and the psychiatrist, however most patients participate from two to four weeks. Before patients finish the program, the treatment team helps to make a thorough discharge plan for ongoing care and coordinates with outpatient providers.
The Partial Hospitalization Program meets in the Community Recovery Center at Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital. For questions or to talk with an intake coordinator, call 262-257-3685.
