Bronx, NY ― Lincoln Medical Center joined with healthcare professionals and community leaders today to open the hospital’s new 30-bed inpatient psychiatry unit, nearly doubling its psychiatric hospitalization capacity.

The new unit, made possible by a $5.3 million New York State Healthcare Efficiency and Affordability (HEAL NY) Phase 18 Grant, will increase the number of patients served, reduce wait time for inpatient beds, improve patient flow in the hospital’s Psychiatric Emergency Room, and virtually eliminate transfers to other facilities, currently at 40 percent of all psychiatry admissions.

The new, beautifully designed 13, 420-square-feet inpatient unit features a sun-lit atrium that has a multi-purpose dining room and staff-supervised kitchenette, a laundry room available for patient use, and spacious rooms designated for group activity, occupational therapy and family visits. Each patient room is outfitted with new furniture, top-of-the-line safety hardware, and large windows with beautiful views of the community. An elegant open-style nursing station with natural light provides a welcoming atmosphere for patients.

In addition, Lincoln Medical Center has implemented the Nurse Assistant System in the delivery of care. This method consists of a wireless panic alarm that alerts staff and hospital police whenever a patient has an episode that may jeopardize safety. This state-of-the-art-technology, along with video monitoring of the unit, will create an even safer environment for both patients and staff.
