State of Michigan Operated Inpatient Psychiatric Hospitals

The State of Michigan operates five inpatient hospitals for individuals who have severe mental illness or intellectual and developmental disabilities. Caro Center, Kalamazoo Psychiatric Hospital and Walter Reuther Psychiatric Hospital serve adult patients while children and adolescents are treated at Hawthorn Center. The Center for Forensic Psychiatry provides diagnostic services to the criminal justice system and psychiatric treatment for criminal defendants adjudicated incompetent to stand trial or acquitted by not guilty by reason of insanity.

Michigan’s state hospitals are accredited by The Joint Commission and are committed to providing evidence supported, person centered inpatient care to individuals in an environment that values compassion, collaboration, and community reintegration.
