Need an Inpatient or Psychiatric Bed?
Check the Maryland Bed Board
Maryland's bed board helps discharge planners locate available psychiatric and crisis beds in real-time. Bed availability is updated three times a day.
Find the type of bed you need from the following categories:
You do not need to refer a patient to the 211 Care Coordination program if a patient is being admitted from the emergency department to an inpatient bed. They can be referred after the psychiatric evaluation if more care coordination services are needed like outpatient care, additional inpatient care or community-based behavioral health services.
How The Program Works
Refer patients by dialing 2-1-1 and pressing 4 immediately. (Daily, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.)
Or, refer online.
211 Care Coordinators will acknowledge your referral within 30 minutes of receipt and will immediately begin identifying available resources through our powerful database.
211 Care Coordinators will connect hospital staff and patients to available, conveniently located behavioral health services.
211 Care Coordinators will follow-up to ensure a successful placement and update the electronic record to close the loop with discharge planners.
