Hensley Behavioral Health Center, located on the 6th floor of Baxter Regional
Medical Center, provides a caring, supportive environment specifically
designed to meet the mental health needs of people 55 years of age and
older. Through a structured plan of individual counseling, group therapy,
coordinated activities, and family support, patients are given the opportunity
to renew social, physical, and mental skills.
Making Patients Feel At Home
The 19-bed center offers an intimate, comfortable environment for patient
treatment and recovery. The private patient rooms are spacious and designed
to provide a pleasant atmosphere.
To meet the unique needs of each patient, we rely on an interdisciplinary
team of healthcare professionals, including primary-care physicians, psychiatrists,
psychiatric nurses, social workers, physical and occupational therapists,
and other trained professionals. The healthcare team works in unison to
help each patient achieve a more satisfying lifestyle.
The interdisciplinary treatment team develops individual treatment plans
for each patient that address both medical and emotional needs through:
- Comprehensive medical care
- Structured daily activities
- Individual counseling
- Group and family therapies
- Recreational therapy through music, art, and more
Individualized treatment plans are used to measure the improvement of each
patient throughout their stay at the center.
Getting Back Into Life
The goal of the Hensley Behavioral Health Center is to help patients return
to the most constructive and optimistic lifestyle possible. The healthcare
team creates a continuing-care plan on the day of admission that is expanded
throughout the duration of the patient’s hospitalization in preparation
for returning the individual their home environment. The patient's
family plays a vital role in all phases of care, from hospitalization
to recovery and continuing care. The aftercare plan developed by the treatment
team provides guidance for the patient after they leave the program.
Admissions and Insurance
Referrals from physicians, human services agencies, the community, and
from family are welcome, as are self-referrals. Assessments may be requested
by a referral source and are provided by qualified, professional members
of our clinical team. A physician determines if an individual needs to
be admitted to the center.
Services for patients admitted to the Hensley Behavioral Health Center
are covered by Medicare and most major health insurance companies.
