Welcome to Marylyn Castas Memorial Hospital We care Marylyn Castas is the largest psychiatric hospital in the area. Our mission is to provide quality comprehensive psychiatric care for all ages and backgrounds, including inpatient and outpatient options across the state. Our goal is to create a safe and comfortable environment for our patients that promotes an improved quality of life. Marylyn Castas Memorial was founded in 1923 by George and Silvia Castas in memory of their daughter Marylyn. Marylyn died of depression in a time where little was known about the disease. George and Silvia devoted the rest of their lives to the research of depression and other mental illnesses and providing care for others who suffer. Today, Marylyn Castas Memorial has expanded to a multifunctional facility with branches across the surrounding area. Our Grounds and Location: Location was a key element in building our hospital. That's why we chose a remote landscape surrounded by a quiet forest. We wanted to create a peaceful setting that removed our patients from the stressors of the outside world. We strive to keep our patients connected to nature with beautiful maintained grounds, walking paths, and gardens for our patients and families to enjoy. Dining Options:Diet is an essential aspect of our mental health. Eating balanced meals at set times each day helps promote the health for both our body and our mind. We prepare each meal with care and research. If you have any dietary needs, please inform our staff and we will accommodate to the best of our ability. Living Quarters:Each room sleeps two patients. You will be assigned a roommate upon check in. We believe that social contact is an important element in our mental health, however there are single rooms available upon discretion of the patient's care team. We encourage patients to utilize the outside grounds, craft room, or lounge. Patients are also encouraged to participate in group sessions. We offer multiple sessions each day with different topics to choose from and patients are welcome to any and all. Schedule: Routine is a comfort for many who are going through difficult times. We try to build a balance of routine and free time for each patient. Meals are served at 8:00 am, 12:00pm, and 6:00 pm. Bedtime is 10:00 pm. Therapy sessions are based on each individual patient's needs and will be scheduled regularly as well. Visiting hours are from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Patients, please inform your therapists to anyone who is not allowed to visit. If you need anything at all, staff are available 24/7.
