Transfers Across County/State Lines – Lake County


Lake County Behavioral Health does not transfer across State lines.

Individuals must be transferred to an appropriate higher level care (this is true for medical or psychiatric) and since there is no designated Psychiatric Health Facility, designated Acute Psychiatric Hospital, or inpatient psychiatric unit in a General Acute Care Hospital in Lake County, mental health consumers must go out-of-county for this. There are no current special protocols for going across county lines.
