The Ambulatory Mental Health Service provides more than 8,000 service visits per year. Our 24-hour Psychiatric Emergency Department makes us a major receiving hospital on Long Island. The emergency service is supervised by two full-time and several part-time psychiatrists, as well as by several psychiatric social workers and nurses.
The professional clinical staff of the Department presently includes 22 full-time and 2 part-time psychiatrists, 9 full-time psychologists, 28 psychiatry residents, and 5 psychology interns. The Department also benefits from staffing with excellent nurses, social workers and recreation therapists. The entire staff participates in the “360 degree” training and evaluation of our residents.
