The Center for Behavioral Health at Plantation General Hospital

Plantation General Hospital’s Center for Behavioral Health strives to achieve excellent patient outcomes within a compassionate and caring environment. Plantation General Hospital’s behavioral health unit provides our patients with the best treatment available through a combination of care coordination, preventive health programs and medication management.

Plantation General Hospital’s interdisciplinary clinical team consists of licensed professionals including psychiatrists, registered nurses, clinical social workers, recreational therapists, and other mental health professionals.

Plantation General Hospital provides adult and geriatric acute inpatient psychiatric care. We treat a wide range of behavioral health diagnoses in a therapeutic and soothing environment.

Our 24 bed unit combines an environment of safety and comfort for our patient. We are committed to providing high quality behavioral health treatment to the Broward community. The newly constructed unit provides state-of-the-art safety in a therapeutic and soothing setting.

The program provides adult and geriatric acute inpatient psychiatric care and treats a wide range of behavioral health diagnoses including co-occurring disorders. The program provides our patients with medication management as well as individual and group based therapy programs. This combined method has been proven to provide the best outcomes in the treatment of mental health disorders.

The psychiatrist works closely with a team of experienced mental health professionals that includes nurses, recreational therapists, social workers, mental health technicians, and case managers. Patients are individually evaluated and their needs are prioritized in order to insure they receive the most appropriate treatment. Social workers and case managers assist each patient in setting up appropriate aftercare following discharge. Patients and families are encouraged to actively participate in both the planning and implementation of the treatment aftercare to optimize the benefit to the patient.
