In an effort to obtain dignified attention for mentally ill patients, we have created customized treatment programs to suit the patient’s needs. We combine traditional psychiatric procedures with therapeutic programs that involve partial hospitalization. This is the best instrument against social isolation and abandonment of the mentally ill.
Care is conducted in Spanish.
What we treat
- Neurotic and Stress-related Disorders
- Behavioral and Emotional Disorders
- Schizophrenia and Delusion
- Suicidal Ideation and Behavior
- Anxiety Disorders
- Mental Disorders
- Mood Disorders
- Bipolar Disorder
We have developed a working model of treatment called “Brief Hospitalization” in which patients stay approximately 6 weeks, allowing the patient to be treated in the acute phase of his/her illness in the institution. Patient hospitalization or long time stay is diagnosed only by the Doctor/Psychiatrist.

Support and Outpatient Treatment
Once a patient is stabilized and re-adapted to their social setting, they are discharged and given follow-up treatment on an outpatient basis.
The “San Ignacio of Loyola” Club is a self-help group, in which families of patients in remission gather in monthly sessions to discuss how to prevent a relapse of their family member, and to establish a different kind of bond than the traditional patient-hospital relationship for the patient.
