    About Cygnet Joyce Parker Hospital...


    Joyce Parker was a caring and dedicated staff memeber at one of our services in the West Midlands who sadly passed away during the COVID pandemic. In her honour and remembrance we have named the hospital after her – Cygnet Joyce Parker Hospital.

    Joyce Parker Hospital will support young people aged between 12 and 18 with mental health illness in psychiatric intensive care and low secure environments. The aim of service is to help young people stabilise and return home as soon as possible.

    Mermaid Ward is a 10 bed CAMHS PICU service with a 2 bed emergency place of safety suite for young people with severe mental illness. This new service is due to open in October 2020.

    The focus on Mermaid Ward is on stabilisation with a view on enabling transition to a general acute ward or back into the care of community services. The service is able to provide robust care and support for young people displaying significant levels of challenging behaviour.

    The other services that will be provided at the hospital are:

    • Dragon Ward – a 12 bed CAMHS low secure service for young people with complex mental health needs, which may include a co-morbid presentation of disordered eating (opening early 2021)
    • Centaur Court – 5 individual flatlet pods for young people that are stepping down from a hospital setting and are ready to trial independent living (opening early 2021).
