Hall-Brooke Behavioral Health Services, Inc., opened a new 60,000-square-foot, 60-bed inpatient mental health and substance abuse hospital in June 2001, and in 2005 it renovated a section to open a 16-bed Women's Unit. The now 76-bed inpatient facility also consists of a Child and Adolescent Unit, Adult/Mood Disorders Unit, and Geriatric Unit. The facility, designed by Graham|Meus, Inc., Architects, is on 25 beautiful acres in a residential neighborhood.

Units were designed with swing doors to enable the number of beds on each unit to increase or decrease to meet the demands of the patient population. All units feature large skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows designed to let in as much natural light as possible. The windows look out onto a serene healing garden featuring a picturesque landscape and stream


All of the units feature modern double and single rooms with private bathrooms. The spacious units also feature common areas, group rooms, private meeting rooms, and an open nursing station.

Hall-Brooke is the only facility in the region with a child and adolescent inpatient unit and has the capability of treating up to 34 patients ages 7 to 18. A secure outdoor play area with safe flooring allows the patients on the unit to exercise and play games.

Hall-Brooke's Women's Unit is one of only a handful of gender-specific psychiatric units in the country. The Women's Unit has a specialized four-bed private suite with a separate nursing station, group room, and common area.
