The Adult Behavioral Health Unit is located at Heritage Valley Kennedy and complements the existing geriatric behavioral health unit. The newly constructed 24-bed adult Behavioral Health Unit (BHU) focuses on the treatment and care of individuals, ages 18 and older, with behavioral health disorders. Because our unit works in close tandem with Heritage Valley Kennedy’s medical services staff, we ensure that both medical and psychiatric needs are effectively addressed simultaneously.
Heritage Valley Health System has a long tradition of serving the behavioral health care needs in the community. The Heritage Valley Health System Board of Directors and leadership team is committed to providing high-quality behavioral health care. Beyond the inpatient behavioral health care at Heritage Valley Kennedy and Heritage Valley Beaver hospitals, the Health System continues a long-standing partnership with Staunton Clinic, an outpatient mental health and resource coordination center, that enables care to continue, uninterrupted, when patients return home.
