    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 supports 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.

    Dragon Ward is 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. Dragon Ward is due to open in early 2021.

    The ward will support young people who may need a longer stay in an inpatient setting within a low secure environment. The service will focus on working with young people to understand their mental health, their risks and support their recovery, enabling them to be successfully discharged to a less restrictive environment and to reduce the possibility of relapse and likelihood of requiring a secure service in the future.

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

    • Mermaid Ward - 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
    • 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).
