  • Emergency and Outreach

    At Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, we believe in providing high quality care to patients, when they need it. Services are offered both on- and off-site, in order to best meet each patient’s unique needs.

    Adults

    Our emergency and outreach services focus on providing rapid, confidential assessments and immediate treatment. Subsequent treatment planning determines the most appropriate follow-up and ongoing care.  

    Our comprehensive psychiatric emergency services are made up of four emergency service components. 

    Our Services

    Psychiatric Emergency Rooms (CPEP)

    We operate two emergency rooms, one at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, the other at Mount Sinai West, wherein we provide a safe, caring environment for patients while their conditions stabilize. We conduct thorough evaluations and work with patients to reduce acute psychiatric disturbances, and then formulate the most appropriate treatment plan for each patient. 

    Extended Observation Beds

    Extended observation beds enable us to monitor patients continuously for up to 72 hours, which often helps to preclude inpatient admissions. These beds are staffed by an attending psychiatrist, a nurse, and a social worker.

    Mobile Crisis Outreach Team

    The Mobile Crisis Outreach team makes home visits when clients in crisis cannot come to the hospital. The team also visits clients formerly seen on-site, who require follow-up services. Crisis intervention, counseling, evaluation, and service access assistance for clients and their families are also provided. Services are limited to a five-day duration per episode.

    Catchment area: 34th Street to 125 Street West of 7th Avenue
    Hours of operation: Open 7 days a week, 7 am to 7 pm
    (212) 523-6711

    Crisis Residence Program

    When residential disruption is a significant cause of crisis, the Crisis Residence Program can provide a brief period of safe supervised housing. We have two beds available for clients in crisis. The staff at our Crisis Residence works with the clients to resolve the crisis, and when necessary, arrange for permanent housing.

    85th Street and Amsterdam Avenue

    Extended observation beds enable us to monitor patients continuously for up to 72 hours, which often helps to preclude inpatient admissions. These beds are staffed by an attending psychiatrist, a nurse, and a social worker.

    Your Care Team

    Your care team consists of multidisciplinary staff with extensive experience providing services to individuals in psychiatric crisis. Staff includes psychiatrists, registered nurses, and social workers whose primary goal is to stabilize clients in acute psychiatric crises and to formulate appropriate treatment plans for each client.
