The University of Texas Harris County Psychiatric Center (UTHCPC), an operating unit of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, delivers a comprehensive program of inpatient psychiatric services to children, adolescents and adults suffering from mental illness.
The hospital serves more than 7,000 inpatient admissions annually. Patients are treated by a highly qualified, multidisciplinary staff-composed of psychiatric physicians, non-psychiatric physicians (including consultants, internists and others), psychiatric residents, psychologists, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, pharmacists, dietitians and chaplains-that provides patients with individualized care.
The hospital serves patients referred from the Harris County Mental Health Mental Retardation Authority, as well as those with insurance referred by private physicians, other hospitals or care providers.
