Behavioral Health Visitation
Care of the patients in our Behavioral Health Department is distinct and designed to ensure optimal care. For that reason, the visiting hours are also distinct. Our visiting hours are planned around the schedule of therapeutic activities. We believe that involving those significant others whose support strengthens our patients and helps prepare them for discharge and ongoing recovery.
