Inpatient Mental Health

The inpatient psychiatric unit (STC-1) is located at the Scott & White Memorial Hospital - Temple. This 21-bed unit serves patients 18 years of age and older. Since STC-1 is located inside a general medical/surgical facility, patients who also have significant medical problems can be treated here. Consultations with other medical services such as internal medicine, neurology, physical therapy and orthopedics can be easily arranged to provide multidisciplinary treatment.


Psychology services and therapies are offered on an outpatient basis at Scott & White clinics.

Child and Adolescent

In addition to seeing children and teenagers who are hospitalized in the pediatric unit, we also provide consultations to area pediatricians and schools.
