Founded in 1898, Heartland Behavioral Healthcare (HBH) provides inpatient care for acutely mentally ill adults from northeastern Ohio. HBH is accredited by The Joint Commission. Read the Joint Commission Public Notice for Heartland Behavioral Healthcare. HBH is also certified by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Local mental health centers refer patients to Heartland Behavioral Healthcare by determining whether someone meets criteria for admission. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide service for direct admission or "walk-ins." Please contact your local mental health center for assistance.
Services include evaluations, intensive psychiatric care, recovery, psychiatry, psychology, social services, patient education, occupational and recreational therapy and work evaluation. In addition, our community support network and child and family services programs provide services to clients and their families residing in the community.
