Partial Hospital Program &
Intensive Outpatient Program

Outpatient Mental Health Services and More

Finding behavioral health care that fits your specific needs isn’t always easy. At Saint Vincent Hospital you can find a personalized outpatient program that can help. Our Partial Hospital Program is geared toward those making the transition from inpatient mental health care to outpatient, or for patients in the emergency room who don’t pose a danger to themselves or others but need a structured treatment plan and environment.

Here you’ll find:

  • Experienced behavioral health experts backed by the resources of a comprehensive behavioral health program
  • A unique Partial Hospital Program for adults from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday
  • An Intensive Outpatient Program offering care for three hours a day, three to five days

Partial Hospital Program (PHP)

Saint Vincent Hospital understands that all of our behavioral health patients need personalized care plans that fit their individual needs. That’s why we offer the Partial Hospital Program PHP at our Saint Vincent location at 299 Lincoln St. Worcester. The PHP is an adult 18+ program that runs 5 days a week Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm. The partial hospital program is appropriate for patients making the transition from inpatient to outpatient, or as a program alternative for clients presenting in the ER who do not present any danger to themselves or others but need a structured treatment plan and environment. Our PHP offers both dual diagnosis (mental health and substance abuse) and primary mental health tracks. Clients receive individualized, focused and goal-oriented treatment to help facilitate stabilization of symptoms in a less restrictive, non-inpatient environment that allows them to return home in the evenings. Treatment is provided through psycho-education, psychotherapeutic, individual/case management, after care planning and medication management. The PHP is short term therapy and our goal is to help patients get back on the right track.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

The partial hospital program also offers an intensive outpatient program that runs 3-5 days a week for three hours a day. The IOP is a step down from PHP level of care and is often for patients transitioning back to previous lifestyle. The IOP is an adult 18+ program and it also has both dual diagnosis (mental health and substance abuse) and primary mental health tracks.
