Behavioral Health Services

We’re here for you. At CHCS, our interdisciplinary team approach includes a thorough diagnostic evaluation as well as the proposal of a treatment plan specifically designed for you. Treatment plans are based on current scientific research and reflect the values, needs and resources of you and your family.

Hospital-Based Services

At CHCS, we provide hospital-based psychiatric care, consultation and liaison services for adults, children and adolescents who are hospitalized for medical conditions. A psychiatrist and primary care physician coordinate admissions to ensure that comprehensive assessments and care are provided.
