Welcome to the Vermont Electronic Bed Board System
Welcome to the Vermont Department of Mental Health Electronic Bed Board System. This system has been specifically designed to assist health care providers to locate potential openings in mental health services for the purpose of referring patients for care. This system currently locates Adult Inpatient, Crisis, Intensive Residential, and Residential beds as well as Children's Inpatient and Crisis beds within the State of Vermont and the Psychiatric Care Unit at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (Adult Only).
The strength of the web site is that it is fast and easy for providers to locate openings for services such as inpatient mental health hospital beds, saving hours of calling facilities to locate openings. Once services are located, essential information including contact names and numbers and directions to the facility, are easy to obtain on this site.
This web site is not designed to manage admissions or transfers of patients. When a service is located on this web site, providers must still contact the facility to discuss potential patient transfers and to make arrangements for services. It is essential that you first contact the facility to arrange for patient transfer and admission and to be sure that the patient is appropriate for admission in the facility. All of the facilities' admission and transfer policies will continue to apply. Each facility will continue to manage their facility openings and admissions.
If this site indicates a bed opening, it does not mean that this bed is guaranteed. Providers must not send patients directly to a facility based upon the indication that there is a bed open from this web site.
