Behavioral Health Center

The Behavioral Health Center (BHC) at IRMC provides inpatient services for children, adolescents, adults and seniors.

Thousands of Treasure Coast residents have been helped back to the path of hope, happiness and a better quality of life through the center’s inpatient and outpatient treatment, counseling services, classes and screenings.

As part of IRMC we are uniquely qualified to combine expert behavioral health service with comprehensive medical care, including a full complement of diagnostic services.

The 46-bed facility, located on a beautiful campus across the street from Indian River Medical Center, includes a gym, pool, shaded courtyards, bright airy rooms and both an indoor and outdoor physical challenge course (ROPES) for experiential learning.

  • Team

    Our therapeutic team is interdisciplinary and includes board certified psychiatrists, experienced RNs, licensed social workers and mental health technicians.

    We embrace a patient-focused model of treatment that puts you and your loved ones in the center and asks, “How can we help you?”

    A distinct advantage of having the BHC as part of IRMC is the availability to provide staff hospitalists and specialists to monitor patients for other medical issues.

  • Assessment

    IRMC is a designated Baker Act receiving facility. Our trained professionals offer screening and assessment for behavioral health issues 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    The assessment provides an opportunity to share any issues that may be troubling you or a loved one with an expert in behavioral health.

    Our clinicians, in consultation with our medical staff, will make recommendations to best suit your needs. These may range from community-based support services to short term inpatient hospitalization.
