BRONX PSYCHIATRIC CENTER
Opened on April 1, 1963, Bronx State Hospital was the first facility of The New York State Department of Mental Hygiene to be planned and built within the catchment area and community it was designed to serve.

In an attempt to break the old patterns of long-term confinement, innovative programs were introduced to restore patients to functioning levels outside the institution. As the facility expanded and new treatment modalities reduced the average length of patient stay, the hospital's catchment area expanded to include the entire borough-close to 1.5 million people.

Nevertheless. the hospital continues to be a community- oriented, decentralized institution, working in close liaison with local facilities and a network of satellite clinics offering day and after care.

In 1966, Einstein and Bronx State Hospital affiliated, marking the first catchment hospital of the State Department of Mental Hygiene to affiliate with a major medical school. In May 1974, its name was changed to Bronx Psychiatric Center.

Presently, the inpatient service has a census of approximately 350. There are wards, which are divided into special units, including admissions, research, and bilingual. The core training experience occurs on one specially staffed long-term psychodynamically oriented training ward.
SUE GOLDING GRADUATE DIVISION OF MEDICAL SCIENCES
The Sue Golding Division of Einstein provides advanced study and research training under the direction of a distinguished faculty of basic research scientists. Affiliation with this medical science division brings an array of scientific faculty and resources to students that is unavailable elsewhere. The breadth of scientific expertise and the number of faculty gives trainees much-needed individual attention and also affords them a rich selection of laboratory opportunities.

It is a given that basic science at Einstein has, at its core, a mission to provide a firm foundation in medical research. Thus residents may arrange special research electives in any of the ten Sue Golding departments:
SOUND VIEW THROGS NECK COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH CENTER
The Sound View Throgs Neck Community Mental Health Center was established on June 1, 1967 to provide comprehensive mental health services to persons residing in the Sound View and Throgs Neck sections of the Bronx. The Center is a program of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

The overall goal of the Community Mental Health Center (CMHC) is to facilitate and achieve client integration into the community while promoting optimal functioning and participation in community activities. The CMHC philosophy is a plan of treatment that is individualized, longitudinal and evolves according to the patient's needs. Treatment is continually reassessed and adjusted over time with the ultimate purpose being the facilitation of independence in a supportive context. The treatment mirrors the illness-it is longitudinal and cyclic; and although treatment may be protracted, it is not necessarily life long.

The Center is committed to providing a wide array of mental health services to all individuals. The Center has two Outpatient Adult Programs, A Continuing Day Treatment program, a Geriatric Program, a Bridger Program, and an Onsite School Program. The staff includes psychiatrists, social workers, psychologists, activity therapists, nurses, community mental health workers and a psychiatric rehabilitation worker.

The major premise of treatment at Sound View is to prevent unnecessary hospitalization. This is achieved through proactive intervention and stabilization via medication adjustment, patient education and continuous monitoring of patient stability when in a vulnerable state. Hospitalization, when needed is provided in a least disruptive, supportive manner with a return to the community support team immediately following inpatient treatment. The treatment follows the client in a "seamless", uninterrupted fashion.
