State Psychiatric Facilities

MDH currently operates five hospitals that provide acute, intermediate, and long-term care of adults.  In addition, MDH operates two residential facilities for youth known as Regional Institutes for Children and Adolescents (RICAs)

Maryland has configured its state hospital system so that it maintains a small safety net of one hospital unit for adolescents at the Spring Grove Hospital Center. Hospital-level services for children under the age of 12 are available through the private sector, with the state purchasing care as needed.
