Providence Portland

Name of Hospital: Providence Portland (adolescent)

City, State/Province, Country: Portland, Oregon, USA

Number of Stars: 4.5

Comment: This is a great adolescent program. The population size is kept small and there are a lot of staff around. I had access to someone I trusted to talk to pretty much any time that I wanted. The rooms were nice and clean, and the food was good. The psychiatrist for the unit was very patient and thorough, and he did not jump to a diagnosis. I always felt aware of why I was there, what was expected of me, and why I was taking certain medications or going to different classes.

Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): Inpatient

Any other identities/marginalizations (i.e. race/gender/sexuality) that could have influenced your stay?: 17 and 18 years old at the time, old for an adolescent unit. White, queer, good insurance.
