Overview of Adult Hospital Inpatient Units

We have two Adult Mental Health Inpatient Unit locations, Upton House at Box Hill Hospital and Inpatient Unit 1 and Inpatient Unit 2 at Maroondah Hospital.

Each Unit has beds for short to medium term support and additional Intensive care beds for people experiencing psychological distress and requiring additional specialised support.

We understand that everyone’s experience of mental ill health and recovery is different, and we aim to work alongside consumers, and their family members and carers to develop together individual treatment and recovery plans.

Recovery is about living a fulfilling meaningful life with or without the presence of symptoms.

Eastern Health recognizes and celebrates the rich diversity of people in our community.

We are committed to providing a safe inclusive and respectful environment for all

individuals accessing our services and support a person’s physical, sexual and emotional safety and are responsive to your particular needs, experiences and preferences.

In order to address the needs of each individual, we have dedicated spaces to ensure our consumers feel safe and supported during their time with our service. We have female only areas within all our units and a male only lounge at Maroondah IPU 1 and Upton House.

We aim to provide safe spaces for all our consumers, and can work with you to identify what you need in order to feel safe. This includes the needs of our trans, gender diverse and non-binary consumers.

Consumer is a common term used to describe people who have used mental health  and wellbeing services as a patient.

At the Hospital Booklet

When parents are admitted to hospital, it can be challenging and confusing time for children and families. The booklet contains pictures of the unit, pictures of staff members and key resources that children and families can access whilst parents are away from home.
