Patients are individual, their care should be too
The Center provides a full range of psychiatric care tailored to each patient’s needs. After the evaluation, patients are referred to the programs that meet their healthcare needs in the most cost-effective manner. We work with patients, employers and payors to return individuals to work and to their families as quickly as possible. All patients receive the highest level of care and complete confidentiality during and after their treatment.
New outpatient treatment for depression
Depression is a serious illness affecting more than 14 million American adults every year. Akron General is the first hospital in Northeast Ohio to offer transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy for hard-to-treat depression.
Day program or convenient evening program
The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a unique and cost-effective treatment program for individuals who’ll benefit from a more intensive treatment than outpatient therapy, but who do not require hospitalization. A structured and intensive day treatment helps patients successfully recover from depression, anxiety, behavioral problems, thought disorders and more.
