For many adults, behavioral health problems - such as depression, anxiety, memory loss and confusion - can be as serious as challenges to their physical health. According to the American Psychiatric Association, three million adults suffer from moderate to severe brain disorders. One in 20 persons over 65 suffers from serious depression, and seniors have the highest suicide rate of any age group in America. But accurate diagnosis and treatment of mental health conditions can greatly enhance the quality of life in later years.

That's why we've established a special 32-bed unit within our hospital to focus on adult psychiatry, an area of medicine that addresses the unique physical and emotional needs of adults. Our experienced, compassionate team of healthcare professionals is dedicated to providing the tender care and the emotional support these patients need.

Adult Behavioral Health Unit

Our Adult Behavioral Health unit is in a secured area of the hospital and offers short-term treatment to stabilize patients age 18 and over who are experiencing a crisis that cannot be managed in an outpatient setting. After a comprehensive assessment, we provide an individualized treatment plan.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our unique Intensive Outpatient program offers an alternative treatment option designed as a "step down" from an inpatient program once an individual no longer needs such a high level of structure, monitoring and care, or when an individual's needs necessitate a more intensive outpatient option than traditional outpatient care.
