Clinical Programs

Inpatient Care

Inpatient adolescent health has four components:

  • In collaboration with mental health, we provide acute care to patients admitted to the six beds which constitute the inpatient eating disorders program.
  • We manage the eating disorder patients who are admitted off service (average of four at any given time)
  • We will undertake care for youth with health care issues, such as avoidant/refusal food intake disorder or conversion, that are often multi-disciplinary, require longer lengths of stay and benefit from the consistency of more consistent MRP
  • We do consults to the pediatric and subspecialty services

Outpatient Care

The outpatient component of adolescent health comprises six or seven half-day clinics for eating disorder follow-up as well as one clinic for new eating disorder assessments. 

There are one or two clinics designated for sexual assault follow-up. 

Two or three half-day clinics are devoted to gender diversity which supports children and youth who identify as transgender. This is a collaborative clinic partnering with pediatric endocrinology.

There are two or three clinics for general adolescent health issues such as: sexuality, substance abuse, adjustment disorders, difficulties with school performance, chronic illness and disability. 

Finally, there is one half-day clinic every two weeks where one of our physicians outreaches to adolescent mothers through the single parent network at St. Mary’s Home.
