At King’s Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, we offer individualized
care in a friendly, supportive environment. Our professional team conducts
a thorough evaluation to help determine what is causing a patient’s
distress and how we can best help. Our clinical team checks to see if
there are any underlying origins to the patient’s symptoms. The
team then works with the patient, their family and other healthcare professionals
to develop an appropriate course of treatment.
Treatment can include individual meetings with psychiatrists, social workers,
group therapy, recreational therapy and educational programs.
Behavioral Medicine Unit
The Behavioral Medicine Unit is for adults who need inpatient treatment
for emotional and behavioral disorders. The unit is licensed for 27 beds,

Admissions are accepted 24 hours a day. Referrals may be made by physicians,
psychologists, social workers, mental health professionals, social service
agencies, family members or friends. The final decision regarding admission
is made by a psychiatrist. Our staff is available 24 hours a day. All

We understand the family’s need to be kept informed of the patient’s
progress and we encourage support. Once the patient is admitted to the
Behavioral Medicine Unit, a family member may be given an access ID number.
This access ID number is released only to selected individuals and only
with permission from the patient. This ID number allows family members
to have either personal or telephone contact with the patient during their stay.
Together, the patient, the family and the treatment team develop an appropriate
aftercare plan. This may involve a day hospital program, a community-based
program or outpatient therapy. Our goal is to help each individual continue
the progress that he or she has already made in the hospital.
