The facility is operated by the Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Addictive Diseases of the Georgia Department of Human Resources.

The hospital provides evaluation and treatment to clients needing care.  The hospitalís admitting office is a psychiatric emergency receiving facility open 24 hours a day.

Interdisciplinary teams on each psychiatric unit work with clients upon admission to formulate an Individual Treatment Plan which sets forth modes of treatment and criteria to be met for subsequent discharge.

Members of the team are a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, activity therapist, and nursing staff.

Georgia Regional Hospital at Savannah is Accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.  The adult admitting unit is certified for Medicare reimbursements by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS).  The ICF/MR Program is certified for Medicaid.
