Psychiatry Consult And Liaison Services

The Hoag psychiatry liaison service supports the various multidisciplinary medical teams throughout the hospital with on-sight consultation and the psychiatric resources necessary to enhance identification and intervention of neurobehavioral disorders. The psychiatric liaison service improves care, as well as patient and physician satisfaction by attending to the often complex neurobehavioral elements of a patient’s presenting medical problem. The Hoag psychiatry liaison service has increased value in the continuum of hospital care by lowering the costs associated with Emergency Department visits, shortening lengths of hospital stay and focusing on decreasing re-admissions.
