New Kent Virginia
As we introduce our new Gradings and Ratings System, we are pleased to announce that Cumberland Hospital falls into our initial group of nine services scoring an "A" rating. Congratulations to Cumberland Hospital.
Cumberland Hospital is a medical hospital for children and adolescents with concurrent severe mental health issues. Most of the patients have at least one of the following illnesses, although these are not admission criteria:
- Eating disorder
- Intellectual disability
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Reactive Attachment Disorder
In most cases, a mental health issue creates a situation where the person is at risk of death from a medical issue that is a consequence of the mental health issue. Diabetes is the reverse; diabetes is a treatable medical disorder but when a person refuses proper self-care, death risk is the consequence.
