Resources for Emergency Evaluation and Treatment

 

Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP)

The Nassau University Medical Center has a psychiatric emergency room serving the entire county of Nassau 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Provides many of the services offered by a CPEP.  Tel: (516) 572-4775

 

Suffolk County

Located at Stony Brook University Medical Center, this hospital-based emergency psychiatric service is open 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.  The program provides an organized system for responding to psychiatric emergencies for evaluation, intervention, treatment and referral for the residents of Suffolk County who have demonstrated a need for emergency psychiatric evaluation or treatment. 

 

Comprehensive medical, physical and psychiatric assessments are completed.  Alternatives to inpatient treatment to persons in crisis will be given to those who do not require admission to an acute inpatient service.  Transfers to other acute psychiatric care facilities may be arranged for persons who are in need of an inpatient level of care. In some cases where additional evaluation or a period of observation is needed, the patient may be retained or admitted to an Extended Observation Bed (EOB) for up to 72 hours. Tel: (631) 444-6050
