Big picture

Bradley Access Center

The Access Center at Bradley Hospital fields hundreds of calls per week from physicians, parents, schools and community providers.


Clinicians are specially trained to perform evaluations for children and adolescents in need of inpatient, outpatient, or partial hospitalization and will direct each child to the most appropriate and effective services for his or her needs.


The Access Center is not open on weekends. Patients in need of emergency services during those hours should be referred to their local hospital emergency room.
