Adult Inpatient | University of Utah Health

5 West is an acute, adult inpatient psychiatric unit for the chronically mentally ill, who often have medical complications as well. Collaboration is essential on 5 West, and our nurses are an important part of a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists, social workers, expressive therapists, case managers, psychiatric technicians, dietitians, and psychologists working with our patients. Because of our association with the Department of Psychiatry, 5 West is on the leading edge of research and education in treating patients.

As a nurse on 5 West you can look forward to:

  • Working in a collaborative, challenging environment with patients who need care for both mental and physical illnesses
  • Being part of a team that highly values empathy in its caregivers
  • Using the latest psychiatric research and education to care for patients
