Inpatient Psychiatry Service | Physical Layout

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

The Inpatient Psychiatry Service is laid out like a "T," with the entrance at the "foot" of the T. When you enter and walk up the hall, you'll find staff offices, meeting rooms, the dining room/kitchen and sensory room on either side of you. At the end of the hall, directly in front of you, is the communication center. The school-age children's rooms and lounge, classrooms and gym are in the main hallway to the right, and the adolescents' rooms and lounge are to the left.

Unless there are special circumstances, most children and adolescents have a roommate. We also have two rooms with hospital beds and medical equipment to meet the needs of patients with physical illnesses. The unit has a washer and dryer, or caregivers can choose to do their child's laundry at home.


We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
