Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit

RoselandAdolescentCareUnitRoseland Community Hospital’s Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit (ABHU) is committed to the mental health and well-being of adolescents’ ages 13-17 years old and families living in the Greater Chicagoland area and throughout the state of Illinois.

The ABHU opened 3 years ago and provides a continuum of care anchored by a 26-bed inpatient facility. Our team of psychiatrist, registered nurses, social workers, therapist and mental health counselors is dedicated to providing services in a compassionate and sensitive manner, focused on the individual needs of patients and their families. We understand that each child has a unique condition and set of circumstances. The unit is managed by Edna Hill, RN.

Our hospital is fully accredited and has a full service emergency department where children can be brought in for medical and psychiatric evaluation. Our services are available 24 hours 7 days per week. Our inpatient psychiatric staff works with the emergency department to quickly assess and determine the need for inpatient psychiatric services. We also welcome calls from families and persons concerned about the emotional needs of a child. Our staff also provides telephone consultation discussing possible treatment options and referral sources.

Adolescents admitted to our unit often experience social, behavioral and emotional disturbances that require the expertise of mental health professionals. We accept Medicaid and other insurance and are committed to servicing youth.
