Who We Are
The Behavioral Health Center is a 76-bed psychiatric hospital in Idaho Falls providing mental-health services. Part of nearby Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center, we are located on a separate campus to provide for the patient’s greatest level of privacy, comfort, and individual care. Affiliation with EIRMC gives us access to the most current and comprehensive medical services available in the region.
Our goal of treatment at the BHC is to help each person achieve his or her maximum level of wellness, happiness, and personal potential.
At BHC, patients are provided with personal and compassionate care by a staff of specialists. The experts include psychiatrists, psychologists, trained psychiatric technicians, nurses, counselors, dietitians, case managers, and recreation therapists. We work as a team to help patients and their families overcome their problems. Our staff is trained in Trauma Informed Care.
The BHC is accredited by The Joint Commission and by Medicare and is a proud sponsor of the Jason Foundation.
How We Help
The Behavioral Health Center provides four separate inpatient programs to ensure that people receive individual care in settings that are appropriate for their needs. Typically the treatment structure involves group therapy, individual counseling, educational groups, recreation therapy activities, and support services.
