We hire those individuals with a calling to serve and help those members of our community with mental illness. You might ask how we do that. Every employee in our hospital provides a compassionate and safe atmosphere to help patients heal. They create and work in a culture of supportive bonds and a family-type atmosphere. We work towards our mission of hope and recovery and are rewarded by seeing patients achieve their treatment goals. That is what keeps our employees returning day-after-day to follow their calling.
