Gracie Square Hospital
A Cornerstone of Mental Healthcare in New York City for More Than 60 Years
For more than six decades, Gracie Square Hospital has provided comprehensive and personalized behavioral healthcare to thousands of individuals in New York City and beyond. Mental health is an essential part of everyone’s well-being, and the team at Gracie Square Hospital recognizes that dealing with mental health challenges can be complex and, at times, intimidating. Through our affiliation with NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine, we are dedicated to improving the lives of our patients and their loved ones through innovative approaches to diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. Furthermore, Gracie Square Hospital is constantly working toward eliminating the stigma of mental illness.
Building on our legacy of world-class patient and family-centered care, we have achieved National Recognition for Excellence from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®, and Planetree Gold certification for Patient Centered Care. In addition, we are proud to be designated as an LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality Leader by the 2022 Healthcare Equality Index (HEI) of the Human Rights Campaign.
Behavioral Healthcare Reimagined
With a 140-bed capacity, Gracie Square Hospital remains a leader in serving mental healthcare needs. Our teams take great pride in providing a welcoming and warm environment in our hospital. We continuously make improvements to our physical spaces and patient-centered programs. These featured enhancements include:
- An elegant lobby with soothing light and comfortable seating that creates a peaceful setting for patients and their loved ones upon arrival
- Private and fully renovated patient bedrooms and bathrooms
- A beautiful 3,000-square-foot rooftop garden with green spaces and yoga classes
- A museum-quality art gallery and art programs featuring live musical performances, and a patient library on each unit
- Amenities for visitors, such as secure day lockers and a refreshment station
Every patient who comes through the doors of Gracie Square Hospital can benefit from the experience and compassionate care of our dedicated providers. Our comprehensive, interdisciplinary team—which includes psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, nurse practitioners, internists, rehabilitation therapists, pastoral care, and volunteers--offers individual, group, and family counseling. A physician is on-site 24/7, and we offer immersive programs specializing in mental health and communal wellness for local Asian and Orthodox Jewish communities, college-age students, older adults, patients needing crisis stabilization or treatment for mood and psychotic disorders, and those also struggling with addiction.
The patient experience at Gracie Square Hospital is further enhanced by a pet therapy program in association with the Good Dog Foundation, a Care Partner Program, movie streaming, and individual iPad use. Hourly comfort rounds by our staff, noise-reduction efforts, and extended visiting hours help make each patient’s stay with us the most comfortable it can be.
