Logansport State Hospital is the Indiana State Psychiatric Hospital Network’s premier forensic hospital with some additional innovations. Isaac Ray with 93 beds is the most secure psychiatric center in the state and serves as the epicenter for the most challenging forensic patients in the network. The Larson Treatment Center with 99 beds operates as a “step down” for those forensic cases that have transitioned into civil commitments with hopeful opportunities to expand transitional services in the future, by emulating a group home environment to assure the safety and successful re-entry in one of the cottages available on the sprawling LSH campus.
