St. Anthony’s Medical Center Hyland Behavioral Health offers several outpatient programs. These programs can be accessed by calling the outpatient department at 314-525-7296 to schedule an assessment for outpatient services.

To obtain an assessment immediately, the Emergency Department provides 24/7 access to services and for behavioral health assessments.

Acute Inpatient Stabilization Services

Hyland serves individuals facing a mental health crisis that puts them at risk to hurt themselves or others. We do not offer primary chemical dependency or detox services, but if someone has both chemical dependency and mental health issues, they may be a good fit for our program. We operate in a multidisciplinary team model with a psychiatrist overseeing each patient’s care and treatment from admission through discharge. Each team is composed of RNs, a master's-level case manager, recreational therapist, music therapist, and nurse aid or tech. In addition, chaplain services, nutrition and other services are available. Our program focuses on helping patients through a severe crisis, so they can return to their homes, with follow up treatment to address ongoing concerns.

Inpatient facilities:

  • Hyland Behavioral Health’s inpatient program consists of adult and adolescent units.
  • All bedrooms are semi-private, although a private room is possible under certain circumstances and when warranted.
  • The units are coeducational, with each bedroom having its own bathroom.

Electroconvulsive Treatment

Electroconvulsive therapy is an effective form of treatment. At St. Anthony’s Medical Center, it is offered in the ECT Suite at Hyland Behavioral Health. The ECT Suite is open for ECT on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Treatment appointments are based on the times your treating physician is available. This may vary from time to time based on the doctor’s schedule and the number of patients being treated.

We recommend you or your physician contact our ECT Department regarding your insurance coverage for ECT at least 48 hours prior to requesting an ECT appointment.

In order to receive ECT treatments the following documentation and tests need to be received at least 24 hours before we can schedule an appointment:

  • Laboratory tests, including CBC and comprehensive metabolic panel
  • Chest X-ray (as directed by physician)
  • Pregnancy test for women still having periods
  • EKG
  • Medical history and physical including medical clearance for ECT

  • Do not drive yourself to the hospital.
  • Do not take your morning medicines unless we have asked you to do so.
