Psychiatric Hospital

Inpatient Treatment Available at the Psychiatric Hospital

The Evangelic Psychiatric Hospital „Hildegard von Bingen“ offers 40 inpatient beds for patients with mental illness and/or addiction from around the area. The manageability of our facility makes individual, personalized treatment possible.

Inpatient treatment is useful if the patient needs relief from everyday demands and challenges in a controlled and protected environment. Any condition treated in our outpatient/day-clinic facilities can also be treated in our inpatient environment.

Inpatient admission usually occurs upon referral by a specialist, other psychiatric outpatient department or the Psychiatric Ambulatory Clinic.

However, inpatient treatment is not possible if a compulsory treatment is judicially mandated as a result of aggressive harm of self or others or refusal of treatment.
