In a minority of cases, hospitalization may be necessary so that an individual can be closely monitored
Our vision in the department of psychiatry Hospitalization at the Maayenei Hayeshua Medical Center states that those with mental illness should receive the highest standards of medical care regardless of stigma, economic or ethnic considerations. The standard of infrastructure regarding comfort and space should not in any way be compromised or be minimalized given that mental illness is the focus of treatment. This includes also respect for space and religious orthodox observance. The facilities are separate according to gender, There are regular prayer and study opportunities on the wards, Sabbath observance is respected and protected, rabbinic consultation is respected, etc.
