Message from the CEO:

Thank you for visiting our Allegiance Behavioral Health Web site. We are behavioral health care facility that specializes in the needs of geriatric adults. Our mission is to assist elderly patients in returning to their lives with the highest level of mental health functioning.

We provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for individuals primarily ages 55 and older who are experiencing emotional, cognitive, or behavioral symptoms. These may include memory loss, mood disturbances, anxiety, difficulty coping with losses and transitions, or behavioral conditions that interfere with care at home or in a long-term care setting.

Our hospital serves the general psychiatric needs of geriatric patients, care for dementia including Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive impairments. The staff at our hospital have special training in treating Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia and we understand that along with cognitive changes, many individuals experience additional symptoms or behavioral disturbances such as agitation and aggression. We pride ourselves on providing safe, compassionate, and efficient care for your loved ones.

We also provide treatment for patients with a wide variety of psychiatric illnesses including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, schizophrenia and other thought disorders. We also treat individuals coping with loss, bereavement, and changes in functioning. Families/caregivers are encouraged to be closely involved and participate during the hospitalization. We work together to collaborate with patients and families to provide treatment in a safe and comfortable environment.

As all of our patients are individuals, their care should also be individualized to maximize cognitive and emotional health which enhances overall quality of life. Personalized treatment is provided utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, including medication management, active participation in group therapy, individual therapy and activity therapy.

We recognize you have a choice in health care providers and we would like the opportunity to serve you and your loved ones.
