WMed Health Psychiatry provides an outstanding academic outpatient psychiatric clinic which sets the standard for patient care in the region. Our goal is to provide comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and treatment which is ethical, accessible, efficient, evidence-based, and advances scientific knowledge. The services we provide include inpatient care, Adolescent Partial Program, Consult/Liaison Service, and ECT. We strive to advance the mission of WMed through a commitment to excellence and health equity.
The clinic is able to see adolescent and adult patients. Once a patient is accepted into our practice they will be assigned to a senior psychiatry resident, which is a physician undergoing specialty training in psychiatry. Appointments with psychiatry residents are supervised via closed circuit video from a separate office by expert faculty psychiatrists. Nursing and social work support is available within the clinic as well.
WMed Health Psychiatry is located at 1717 Shaffer Road in the Ascension Borgess North Professional Building in Suite 010 on the Lower Level in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Parking is available adjacent to the building. Our practice is a non-smoking environment.
