The University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) is one of the nation's leading academic medical centers, providing highly specialized medical care in areas such as cardiology, high-risk pregnancy and neonatal intensive care, oncology, and organ transplantation. Patients travel from across Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho for these specialized services.
Because the link between mental health and medical conditions is deeply intertwined, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences faculty provide primary care consultation at a number of medical specialty programs at UWMC. A patient learning he has cancer might need help with depression, while an expecting mom with a mental health condition might need advice on medications. Mental health care is integral to a patient’s experience, and we work closely with other providers to provide whole person care.
Our faculty provide consultations to the following: Center for Pain Relief at UWMC-Roosevelt, Maternal and Infant Care Clinic, Regional Heart Center, Transplant Services, and General Internal Medicine Center.
We also staff an Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic at UWMC-Roosevelt that offers a variety of treatments, a Perinatal Psychiatry Clinic for new and expecting moms, and inpatient units at UWMC for primary psychiatric needs or psychiatric needs created by complex medical conditions.
