Center for Behavioral Health


The ability to cope with the normal stresses of life can sometimes become overwhelming and may interfere with an individual's ability to be happy, productive and contribute to the community. When this happens, there may be changes in behavior such as depression, anxiety, mood swings, and withdrawal from others.

Our 20 bed unit in a dedicated part of the hospital offers intensive diagnostic evaluation and treatment in a comforting environment. After a patient is medically cleared in the emergency department and admitted, he or she receives a comprehensive assessment of needs and strengths in essential areas of functioning such as self-care, social skills, and symptom management. Our interdisciplinary team includes physicians, psychiatric nurses, and social workers.

We focus on a practical approach to solving problems. We believe that effective treatment incorporates a variety of psychological and behavioral techniques, including the use of proper medication and patient participation in therapeutic groups. We are committed to stabilizing each patient and containing symptoms through respectful, compassionate treatment.

A patient-specific treatment plan is then created, identifying the patient's needs and the most effective way to reach recovery goals. When designing the treatment plan, we encourage the involvement of the patient, family, and other involved healthcare professionals. The plan may include psychopharmacologic regimens and a full range of psychological interventions.

  • Comprehensive medical and psychiatric assessment on admission
