Trenton Psychiatric Hospital is a 400-bed psychiatric hospital serving a designated New Jersey population. We are a Joint Commission accredited health care facility, one of four psychiatric hospitals governed by the State of New Jersey, Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
Dorothea Lynde Dix, a pioneer in the care of the mentally ill, founded Trenton Psychiatric Hospital in the 1840’s. Honored in the nursing profession as an American scholar and educator and a lifelong psychiatric crusader, Ms. Dix retired at the age of 80 to a private apartment set aside for her at the New Jersey State Hospital (TPH today) where she remained until her death in July of 1887.
TPH believes in providing a holistic approach to patient care, from the initial assessment to the treatment of the human response to actual or potential health problems. We ensure the patient and the patient’s family competent, compassionate care as we collectively achieve individualized patient care goals.
We are located on Sullivan Way in West Trenton. For more information, please call (609) 633-1500.
