Bryan Psychiatric Hospital is licensed by the state of South Carolina as a Specialized Hospital and is accredited by The Joint Commission. Bryan Hospital provides inpatient psychiatric services to adults. Patients in the hospital's Civil Division are admitted primarily from the 33 counties comprising the Midlands region, the Pee Dee region and the Low Country region of South Carolina. The majority of patients treated in the Adult Services Division are involuntary admissions. Patients in the hospital's Forensics Division are primarily referred by jails and criminal courts from throughout the state, and are housed separately from patients in the Adult Services Division in a more secure area of the hospital. This facility is located on property next to the former Palmetto State Hospital.
