We offer 24-hour physician coverage, and a secure courtyard available for outdoor groups and activities.

Our specialized programs provide acute psychiatric inpatient care designed to address a broad range of emotional and behavioral conditions. Some patients come to our hospital with medical issues in addition to mental health issues. We embrace each of our patients as an individual with a personal history and unique health situation. Throughout their stay, our patients experience a warm, caring environment focused on returning the patient to their optimal level of functioning.

We provide therapies and treatment that help patients achieve their fullest recovery potential.
