Dedicated to quality care provided by
experienced,compassionate professionals.


Genesis Behavioral Hospital offers a comprehensive treatment approach to stabilizing acute psychiatric problems in adults of all ages. Genesis is equipped to address a multitude of psychiatric illnesses including but not limited to depressive disorders, bi-polar illnesses, anxiety disorders, and chronic mental illness. Individuals experiencing severe behavioral disturbance or an inability to function on a day to day basis may also benefit from treatment.

Patients in crisis will find a structured, safe, and secure environment that offers hope and compassion.The ultimate goal of treatment is to stabilize the immediate crisis. A multi-disciplinary treatment team including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses,  activity therapists, social workers, and counselors will work on a treatment plan individualized to that patient.

In order to reduce the need for future hospitalizations at Genesis, proper discharge planning is a priority. Staff members work towards identifying and coordinating community resource support and aftercare services and/or appointments to assist each patient in meeting their goals. Whenever possible and if clinically appropriate, a patient's family is engaged in the therapeutic process during the patient's stay. Also, staff members will call the patient after discharge to follow-up with them and see how they are doing.
