In 2001, by request of  Navab Safavi’s  family the name was changed to Iran Psychiatric Hospital and Now, after 35 years, the hospital has 160 beds in 6 wards, including men, women, neurotic (Mehr), emergency, substance and alcohol wards, and extensive facilities like community psychiatry, cognitive-behavioral and analytical psychotherapies, neurocognitive lab, and substance use disorder clinic.
