Barbara Jonas Psychiatric Hospitalist Program Highlighted in The Wall Street Journal and Psychosomatics
The Barbara Jonas Psychiatric Hospitalist Program was established at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to provide mental health care for inpatients admitted for medical and surgical conditions. The program is named for Jonas Center co-founder Barbara Jonas, a longtime mental health advocate and former practicing psychotherapist.
Patients receiving treatment in a hospital for a medical illness frequently also have psychiatric disorders or acute behavioral problems, which complicates treatment and may lengthen hospital stay and recovery. Research has shown that hospitalists can improve quality of care and patient satisfaction and reduce length of stays.
