The Ann Klein Forensic Center, a 200-bed facility, is the state's newest psychiatric hospital and serves a unique population that requires a secured environment. Our facility provides care and treatment to individuals suffering from mental illness who are also within the legal system.

The clients at Ann Klein Forensic Center are special in many respects and require an interdisciplinary team approach. The care plan is comprised of both independent and interdependent contributions from our staff and is communicated to the medical security officer assigned to each client. We work as a team, with each member treating the other with courtesy, consideration, and respect. We serve our clients without judgment, applying professional knowledge and skill to achieve a positive outcome.

Safety is an important component in our work for both the clients and the staff. Every aspect of this is closely monitored for compliance so an environment of physical and emotional safety will be maintained for everyone.
