The adolescent psychiatric department is located in its own building at the Rankweil Regional Hospital and comprises ten fully inpatient and currently four semi-inpatient treatment places. In the acute area there are two places for young people and two places for children. The openly guided station is suitable for children and young people.

The child psychiatric department is located in the Ringstrasse in Rankweil with a total of ten beds.

The rural surroundings of the LKH Rankweil offer numerous opportunities for social pedagogical and everyday practical group therapies. Furthermore, the spatial proximity to the main building of the LKH Rankweil allows the rapid use of the entire medical offer.

The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the LKHR works closely with outpatient services (aks, pro mente, etc.) and inpatient facilities (Jupident, VoKi, etc.). This makes it possible to provide children and adolescents with optimal treatment options for their individual needs.


Access to child and adolescent psychiatry is usually through the presentation of children / adolescents in the LKHR outpatient clinic. In acute cases, the official doctor may also give instructions.

The outpatient department at the LKHR is designed as a primary outpatient department (preparation for inpatient admissions), aftercare outpatient department (transition to extramural outpatient treatment) and as an emergency outpatient department.
