Francis Hayden, MD

Francis Hayden, M.D. has been committed to family-centered, holistic psychiatry since he began practicing in in the New York Metro area following his residency in 1995. Raised in Kentucky in a semi-rural area, he grew up valuing community, good character, and a commitment to service. After attending parochial schools through college, he began to investigate the world outside of his small town of Owensboro. After several years in Lexington, Kentucky, attending medical school, he was somewhat surprised to discover that he enjoyed the excitement and cultural ferment and diversity of larger cities. Therefore, he chose to do his residency and substance abuse fellowship in the Bronx, New York, working at Jacobi, North Central Bronx, and Montefiore Hospitals, and Bronx Psychiatric Center. His first attending position was at Four Winds Hospital in Katonah, New York. After three years at Four Winds, he had the opportunity to complete a child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at New York University. He also had three years of weekly family therapy training and supervision during his fellowships. Dr. Hayden's clinical positions have ranged from academic medical centers, to private practice, to community hospitals, and state psychiatric hospitals. He is board certified in adult, child & adolescent, and addiction psychiatry. Currently he is an inpatient psychiatrist at Manhattan Psychiatric Center, and participates in the teaching of medical students. He is recognized as a superb clinician who provides the highest quality of individualized and accessible care to his patients. Dr. Hayden is known for providing direct access to all his patients. He is skilled in psychiatric assessment, psychopharmacology, family dynamics, child development, psychotherapy, and addiction management. He is dedicated to a life of spiritual exploration based upon the principle of the independent investigation of truth. His hobbies include current events, computers, and karaoke. He dreams of one day writing a book about the remarkable bounty and privilege of psychiatric practice, and the immense respect he has gained over the years from seeing his patients confront mental illness with courage and dignity.
