Collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital, McLean Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital


As an affiliate of Partners Psychiatric, the Psychiatry Department works closely with Massachusetts General Hospital, McLean Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Our expertise in matching clients with the most appropriate level of care has resulted in fewer and shorter hospitalizations, reduced overall use of health care resources and increased quality of life.

Referrals to the inpatient unit come from many sources, including local and regional emergency rooms, residential treatment programs and outpatient treatment providers. Referrals are directed through the NSMC psychiatric triage system at 978.354.4550.
