Emergency Services

emergency-iconThe Seton Psychiatric Emergency Department opened in the late spring of 2014 to meet the needs of people in crisis, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The emergency department provides urgent help and immediate options with a fully trained staff to diagnose and treat behavioral health emergencies.

Behavioral health patients who need emergency medical care are treated first in emergency rooms at Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas and other hospitals. Then, as determined by their treatment team, the patients will be transferred to the psychiatric emergency department for evaluation after they are medically stabilized.

Seton Psychiatric Emergency Department, a department of Dell Seton Medical Center, is located in the northeast area of Dell Seton. No appointment is required.
