In a minority of cases, hospitalisation may be necessary so that an individual can be closely monitored

Our team at Hospitalisation Ward respects patients’ dignity and autonomy and maintains them within the context of an intense treatment milieu. This includes one-on-one, family and group therapy treatments. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of psychiatric care with optimal standards of professional conduct and clinical practice for individuals with mental disorders and their families. Evidence-based treatment will be the foundation of such management practice while integrating mental health care with general medical care on the grounds of a general hospital medical center.  We believe that our patients should receive the same   medical standard offered to others with general medical illness.

High standard medical care at Hospitalization Ward

Our vision states that our patients deserve the highest standards of medical care regardless of stigma, economic or ethnic considerations. The standard of infrastructure regarding comfort and space should stay the same when treating mental illness. This includes respect for space, religious orthodox observance (e.g. separate facilities for gender, regular prayer and study opportunities on the wards, Sabbath observance respected and protected, rabbinic consultation and input etc). A multidisciplinary team approach is exploited including medical and paramedical staff along with several treatment options relatively unique to mental health including music, exercise, animal, horticultural, art and movement therapies.
