About Bronx Psychiatric Center

Bronx Psychiatric Center provides a continuum of inpatient, outpatient and related psychiatric services with inpatient hospitalization at the main campus. Two outpatient sites in the borough of the Bronx.

Vision

Bronx Psychiatric Center's vision, in the spirit of hope and recovery, is to create a safe and respectful treatment environment that emphasizes collaboration and support among staff, recipients and their families

Mission

In partnership with recipients, their families and the community, Bronx Psychiatric Center will provide an integrated system of treatment to facilitate hope and recovery of individuals with serious mental illness. We will offer a choice evidence based programs which respect the dignity, cultural differences and self worth of those we serve, and we will offer them in the safest environment possible.

Values

Guiding Principles

Safety first: Patients, staff and our community.

We provide treatment, rehabilitation and support to assist patients in their recovery process. Our services are tailored to the individual: his or her illness, culture, religious beliefs, family functional level and overall social supports.

We actively work to promote empowerment, advocacy, and choice by consumers of service. We are actively involved as partners with consumers in fighting the stigma and misconceptions about mental illness.

We work with families as respected allies.

We operate under contemporary principles of health care: value for the dollar is measured by clinical outcome, satisfaction of the customer, accessibility of services and efficiency of service delivery. We specialize in treatment of people with severe and complex mental illness which requires continuity of care, not episodic care. We operate as part of an integrated delivery network that is planned and supervised by County Departments of Mental Health.

We intend not only to meet and exceed existing standards in our field, but to contribute in establishing new ones. To do this, we must all be involved in continuous learning, problem solving and performance improvement and reliance upon science as it leads to innovative, evidence based treatment approaches.

To provide hope, everything about our work must project hope: the environment in which we work; the way we interact with people; the respect and dignity which we accord others, our emphasis on the strengths of those we serve; our knowledge about advanced treatments and their promise; and our caring and dedication to those we serve.
