Patients who come to our emergency departments with mental health issues will be evaluated by a triage nurse before being seen by a physician. We see everyone as quickly as possible. However, we do treat the most critical patients first. Our staff will do its best to speed the process, and we’re always available to answer any questions you may have.
Because Novant Health Huntersville Medical Center and Novant Health Matthews Medical Center do not offer inpatient mental health treatment, patients who initially visit these facilities but need inpatient mental health care may be transferred to Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center in downtown Charlotte, or another nearby facility, for further treatment.
