Inpatient Acute Psychiatric Unit
If you need hospitalization, Masonicare offers a warm, home-like place to recover in comfort. Our hospital-level Acute Care Unit features a caring, specially trained staff and beautifully appointed rooms where you can focus on recovery.
What Is Acute Care?
It’s around-the-clock medical attention to recover from, among other things, acute MI, pneumonia, heart failure, unstable angina, septicemia, nutritional deficiencies, urosepsis, or COPD. The focus of acute care is to restore seniors to their previous level of functioning and self-sufficiency.
Admissions: Patients can be admitted 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your primary care physician will make arrangements with Masonicare. Acute care is considered a hospital admission and is covered by Medicare and most insurance.
Whom We Help

over age 21.
