The University of Miami Hospital (UMH) is the flagship facility for the UM Miller School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. At UMH we have 90 inpatient beds and a beautifully remodeled outpatient office suite where we offer a broad range of psychotherapies in addition to state-of-the-art psychopharmacology. Our specialty programs include a specialized OCD center, medical psychiatry unit, mood disorders unit, ECT service, and eating disorders treatment. Our expert faculty, along with our private practice physician partners, represent the leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders.
We serve patients from Florida, the Southeast, as well as nationally and internationally. In fact, several of our providers are bilingual in Spanish and we welcome referrals from Latin America. A large portion of our patients come to us by self-referral, and because our programs yield effective results for patients who are refractory or treatment resistant we often receive referrals from the patient’s current physician or psychologist.
