Institute for Mental Disease-Nursing Facility
A primary service provided at Trempealeau County Health Care Center on the IMD-NF units includes a focus on safety using an interdisciplinary treatment team approach.
We provide two secured IMD-NF units that support an individual’s safety while receiving treatment. Additionally, an unsecured unit and Gero-Psych Stabilization Unit within the IMD-NF licensure allows for individuals who experience less struggles with safety to receive treatment with close access to a more supportive environment, if needed. Once an individual has completed our treatment program they are discharged to one of our community-based placements or return to the community to continue their recovery in a less structured setting.
A unique program within the Trempealeau County Health Care system is the ability to utilize the Crisis Bed Program at our Main center. This program allows an individual within our system, who is struggling with safety, to be temporarily admitted or be readmitted to the IMD-NF unit for further stabilization in a safe and supportive environment.
Individuals who are admitted to our IMD –NF units are on either a Mental Health Commitment or Protective Placement Order under Wisconsin state statutes. These are individuals who have struggled with serious and persistent mental illness or addictions who are in need of additional supports not available in the community.
Please see resources for additional information for admissions.
