John Lauriello, MD, Missouri Psychiatric Center Medical Director

Our philosophy
Treatment services are designed to meet the inpatient needs of adults, adolescents, children and their families who are in crisis or who need a comprehensive diagnosis evaluation in an inpatient setting. The goals of hospitalization are to evaluate, stabilize and treat mentally ill individuals, and to carefully evaluate all possible medical and psychological reasons for a psychiatric disorder. Our multidisciplinary treatment team has created a comprehensive, integrated and safe diagnostic therapeutic environment in which problems can be discussed and healing can begin.
