Mission

We assist individuals in achieving optimal mental health, their families in learning to cope with and support their loved ones in dealing with the disease process, and the community to acquire a better understanding of mental illness, its treatment, and its impact.

Vision

Help the people we serve attain a better quality of life by delivering effective, high quality care through integrated services which are responsive to individual needs.

A Higher Standard of Care

Specialized programming is a key component of the psychiatric hospital’s success. Dedicated inpatient units are designed to meet the unique needs of each population we serve. After a comprehensive evaluation to assess a patient’s needs, a multidisciplinary treatment team develops a treatment plan tailored for that patient. The treatment team is led by a psychiatrist and consists of registered nurses, licensed social workers, therapists and activity therapists, and, for dually-diagnosed patients, addiction counselors. Input from the patient and the family is also crucial to a successful outcome.
