Four Winds Hospitals are located on two serene campuses in New York State. Four Winds Katonah is 50 minutes north of midtown Manhattan. Four Winds Saratoga is located in Saratoga Springs, 30 minutes north of Albany. Four Winds provides inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment services for children, adolescents and adults. We are the leading specialized providers of inpatient psychiatric treatment for children, adolescents and adults in the northeast.
In 1978, Samuel Klagsbrun, MD, purchased Four Winds Hospital, whose name was inspired by a passage in the book of Ezekiel 37. 9-10: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain that they may live…and the breath came into them and they lived…and they stood on their feet.”
Upon opening the ‘new’ Four Winds. Dr. Klagsbrun said, “Four Winds will provide a healing, nurturing environment…the kind of place where clinicians will want to send their patients, their own relatives. This means we will provide the very best professional clinical care, the most advanced and sophisticated treatment, and we will have a deep empathy for the pain experienced by the mentally ill and their families. Everyone will be treated with the dignity and respect to which they are entitled. Our goal is to offer the kind of intensive, compassionate care that will end the revolving door of psychiatric hospital admissions experienced by many who suffer from mental illness. There is the full expectation that patients will recover.”
Expanding Dr. Klagsbrun’s vision into upstate New York, Four Winds opened yet another hospital in Saratoga Springs in 1986 under the leadership of Xavier Mastrianni, MD, and Robert Greenbaum, Ph.D.
Today, Four Winds Westchester is a 175 and Four Winds Saratoga is an 88 bed psychiatric hospital serving children, as young as age five, adolescents and adults in both inpatient and outpatient partial hospitalization programs.
It is the philosophy of Four Winds that quality treatment, delivered at the appropriate level of care, is not only clinically effective, but cost effective. Our goal is to ensure that every individual receives the services they require during the course of their treatment. Four Winds accepts patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
