PROVIDENCE – Bradley Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital have launched a new eight-bed unit designed specifically to treat children diagnosed with both a medical and psychiatric illness. The new Medical Psychiatric Inpatient Program, the first of its kind in the region, will be located at Hasbro and is for children and adolescents from six to 18 years old.

The program brings together Bradley Hospital’s expertise as the nation’s first psychiatric hospital for children with the cutting-edge pediatrics care provided by Hasbro Children’s Hospital, one of the region’s most robust medical facilities.

“Many children who have a known chronic illness, as well as a psychiatric issue, are in and out of the hospital constantly because it’s difficult to provide care that encompasses all of their needs,” said Dr. Henry Sachs, chief medical officer at Bradley Hospital. “These are kids who cannot fully ‘get better’ until we give them all of the treatment they need at once – to put the whole health of the child in focus and end the cycle.”

The program is expressly designed for children and adolescents with both acute mental health and medical conditions who require hospitalization, such as the nearly 20 percent of adolescents with diabetes who have also been diagnosed with depression.

“Experience has shown us that children with anxiety or depression are inhibited in their ability to heal from medical conditions,” said Dr. Robert Klein, Hasbro Children’s Hospital pediatrician-in-chief. “For the first time, Bradley Hospital and Hasbro Children’s Hospital have combined the expertise of both hospitals to give these children the environment of care they truly need.”
