LifeCare Behavioral Health Hospital

LifeCare Behavioral Health Hospital provides acute inpatient psychiatric treatment for a variety of mental illnesses and accompanying medical issues for adults ages 18 and older. Located in Pittsburgh, the hospital features 49 private rooms for patients in a safe, caring environment.  

Led by board-certified psychiatrists, our highly trained group of physicians, nurses, social workers and case managers work together to provide individualized care for each patient because no two patients are alike, and neither are their journeys.   We encourage family members and significant others to participate in the process.  Depending on a patient’s individual care plan, treatment can include comprehensive psychiatric and psychological assessments, neuropsychiatric testing, psychology services, intensive medication management, weekly patient/family conferences with the treatment team, extensive social services and case management, and daily group therapy in a secure environment.

  • Depression related to
    - Loss and grief

  • Treatment Resistant Illnesses such as
    - Anxiety Disorders
    - Bipolar Disorder
    - Schizophrenia
    - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
    - Dementia
    - Alzheimer’s Disease

Our team is also equipped to treat patients with medical issues in addition to mental health issues.  For these patients we offer physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and therapeutic activities as part of their care plan.

Throughout their stay, patients experience a family-friendly environment that recognizes the important role loved ones play in recovery.  Ultimately, this collaborative approach can lead to shortened hospital stays and improved outcomes. LifeCare Behavioral Health Hospital offers 24-hour physician coverage as well as dedicated medical staff representing a range of medical specialties.  

If you are looking for expert care for you or your loved one, we are here to help.  We are conveniently located a short distance east of Pittsburgh.  We accept acutely ill patients on a voluntary or involuntary basis.
