EmPATH Unit – A New Way to Treat Patients with Emergency Mental Health Needs

The CentraCare Helmsley EmPATH Unit at CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital provides a model of care that transitions patients away from the sometimes chaotic environment of the emergency department into a welcoming and calming setting where a multidisciplinary team of mental health professionals can provide assessment, initiate treatment, and begin the healing process. The patient and this team of professionals will develop a tailored treatment plan prior to transitioning to the next level of recommended care.

Funding to construct this new unit was made available through The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust and CentraCare Foundation community donors.
