CU hospital eliminating psychiatric beds
The University of Colorado Hospital plans to close its inpatient psychiatric ward in January in order to offer services to other patients, such as those in need of cancer care. The currently 18-bed unit will convert to 22 beds, which officials predict will increase admissions to about 300 annually. The hospital's outpatient psychiatric services will remain unchanged.
