Partial Hospitalization

At Aurora Sheboygan Memorial, we recognize that each person has specific clinical and social needs. Our Partial Hospitalization Program is designed to help patients with the specific issues and problems affecting their lives. Whether transitioning from an inpatient stay or being referred for more intensive treatment from an outpatient setting, our program provides our clients with the structure, support and education necessary to help them overcome their behavioral health issues. We provide specialized treatment for many behavioral health problems, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, thought disorders, as well as co-occurring disorders.

The Partial Hospitalization Program provides intensive treatment Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The program is designed to provide support and services to individuals for 7 to 10 days of full-day programming. Our program uses cognitive behavioral therapy to develop more effective coping skills, improve management of symptoms, and promote healthy-living skills. This comprehensive approach to patient care incorporates group education and therapy, individual and family therapy, psychiatric evaluation, and medication management. Our multidisciplinary team consists of psychiatrists, nurses, psychotherapists, case managers and occupational therapists.
