With more than 150 in attendance including faculty, staff and community members, Stony Brook University Medical Center (SBUMC) broke ground on its new Comprehensive Emergency Psychiatric Program (CPEP) Annex, a 10,000 square foot state-of-the-art patient care facility that will replace 2,050 square feet of outdated space. The new space will be located adjacent to the Emergency Room on the east side of the Medical Center, and is expected to be complete by fall of 2011.

SBUMC's CPEP provides hospital-based, round-the-clock, daily emergency psychiatric care. The program provides an organized system for responding to psychiatric emergencies for evaluation, intervention, treatment and referral for individuals who need emergency psychiatric evaluation or treatment. The staff is comprised of specially trained psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, and nursing assistants who are committed to providing the best emergency psychiatric care.
