Adventist Health St. Helena in California opened a 10-bed behavioral medical unit to provide collaborative care for people with behavioral health disorders and medical conditions who cannot be treated safely on a typical psychiatric or medical unit. People admitted to the unit receive personalized care from a multidisciplinary team of physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, and other staff. The new unit opened on January 25, 2021. Adventist Health St. Helena also operates a 21-bed mental health unit.
