PrairieCare is the only stand-alone Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Specialty Hospital in Minnesota. In addition to inpatient hospital services for youth PrairieCare provides a full continuum of care across the lifespan in our seven locations.
Services can be accessed by calling our Intake Advisors at 952-826-8475 to schedule a Free Needs Assessment. If you are a mental health professional or a hospital provider you will be directed to our Direct Admission Coordinators (or RAPID coordinators on site for Adult IOP admissions)
If you are a hospital seeking an inpatient bed, capacity is determined each morning after clinical rounds at 11:00am at which time we can quickly provide an updated response:
- Yes, we can accommodate this patient.
- We do not have capacity at this time.
- We do not have capacity at this time, but may have openings later today. Please call back in (2-4 hours).
Inpatient bed availability varies based on our capacity to provide care. This capacity is reassessed on a continual basis throughout the day and, in particular, during daily team rounds which conclude at approximately 11am. We understand that accessing inpatient treatment can be frustrating for all involved. While we strive to provide a concrete “yes” or “no” regarding bed availability, variability in clinical acuity and barriers to discharge planning frequently make this challenging. Please know that we will do everything we can to streamline the admission process and to make it as stress-free for all involved.
I think more people should help their kids with issues through the PC approach. Very helpful to both my boys! Thanks!
