Emergency Mental Health Services can be accessed through the Emergency Department at Hunterdon Medical Center. Hunterdon Medical Center’s ER features a secure, private surveillance room for patients with mental health emergencies. This room enables our psychiatric team to stabilize and care for patients in a safe environment separate from the rest of the department.
Potential patients receive medical clearance from Emergency Department physicians, who then call for a behavioral health consult from Hunterdon Medical Center’s crisis clinicians. The Psychiatric Emergency Service at Hunterdon Behavioral Health is a Screening Center for Hunterdon County.
Emergency services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our highly trained staff has extensive experience in crisis intervention strategies. Patients can be referred to community agencies as well as to Hunterdon Behavioral Health, upon completion of emergency services.
For more information about Hunterdon Medical Center’s Emergency Department, call our 24-hour Crisis Hotline at 908-788-6400. For more information about Behavioral Health, contact your family physician for a referral, or call toll-free 1-866-HBH-2060.
If you are experiencing an emergency, call 9-1-1.
