Seven Hills Behavioral Hospital
I was admitted to Seven hills two weeks ago for severe depression and suicidal thoughts. I saw Dr. Ho and fund out the bipolar medication I was taking was wrong for me. He adjusted my medication and I feel most more stable than I ever have. The nurses and techs were very helpful. We had group sessions in the day room. You could tell the kitchen staff really made an effort to cook good food and even made sure there was something for my vegan diet. Special thanks to tech John in generation unit. Now if you are looking for a fancy room with stable roommate, you are probably not going to be happy.Remember you are in a behavior hospital. The techs may be stern at times, but they do their jobs protecting you. The majority of the patients care only about 3 things, when do we eat, when do I get my meds, and number one issue.....When is smoke break! The verbal demands and abuse on the staff is terrible! I am very grateful to the staff and Dr. Ho, they genuinely gave me back my sanity!

I was in the partial hospital program, where I went 5x a week for 6 hours a day for group therapy. KC, the therapist was amazing, and the staff was friendly, efficient, and helpful. My meds were corrected and the group therapy taught me some wonderful coping skills. This was a very positive experience and I was there for 4 weeks! I highly recommend this place, and remember when reading the reviews, people only leave reviews when their experiences are negative. There's always a reason why someone would be let out early, whether it be insurance or non compliance. This is a very well run program. Renee

I went to Seven Hills hospital, because I was in a very deep depression. I had been in another hospital 3 times, and I finally decided to go somewhere else. Im so glad I did. The staff was so very caring and understanding. My Dr, really listened to me. They dont shove you in groups all day. I am finally on the right meds. Thank God for Seven Hills Hospital. They saved my life.
Tips & Advices
Many hospitals have their own websites that include information about services offered and how to contact personnel. But you can also search online, in the phone book, and through health and medical-focused review websites.
Medical service prices vary according to the hospital, the type of procedure, and many regulations. The price that a patient actually pays will depend on their insurance coverage policies. If they do not have health insurance, patients may establish payment plans with the health care provider directly.
Most Americans older than 65 are insured under the Medicare program for emergency hospital visits and basic medical care. Whether you are about to turn 65 or already have, you should familiarize yourself with the Medicare program and the benefits it provides. Medicare can work in conjunction with a workplace or other private health plan. Seniors should also take the time to establish legal documents concerning future medical care and end-of-life procedures. These include a living will, advance medical directive, and related documents.
Visitation rules vary by hospital, but in general, any biological or legal family member of a patient is allowed to visit them at an appropriate time and at the patient’s discretion. Friends are typically  allowed to visit at the patient’s and their caregiver’s discretion. A patient may also designate a support person to make decisions on their behalf regarding visitation.
Ambulances are driven and staffed by medical professionals who will transport patients to the closest hospital that can provide the specific services needed. Some hospitals specialize in certain types of emergency care - facilities that specialize in trauma, heart attacks, stroke victims, and children are a few common examples. The patient being transported has the right to request a particular hospital, but the ambulance personnel may refuse this request if they have reason to believe treatment is required as soon as possible. Paramedics may require you to sign a waiver before transporting you to a hospital that you request.
