The Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division (BHD) is expanding its Psychiatric Crisis Service (PCS) Admission Center as part of an effort to provide improved patient care and safety.
The PCS Center serves about 14,000 people every year. The center provides psychiatric emergency services, including assessment, crisis intervention and medication 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
Updated features including a new triage area, an additional workstation and a children’s waiting area will help staff immediately assess patient needs and reduce or eliminate wait times.
This project was made possible thanks to support from Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy Romo-West and the county board’s Health & Human Needs committee.
An open house will be held on Monday November 5th from 2-4pm. Consumers, staff and community partners are invited to come view the new center. Any members of the media interested in attending must RSVP no later than 12pm on Monday. RSVPs should be emailed to Community Relations Coordinator Tonya Simpson at [email protected]
