Hospital for Behavioral Medicine (HBM) specializes in mental health treatment. Our 120-bed inpatient facility is equipped with the latest safety features designed to provide patients with a comfortable environment to receive therapeutic care. Situated in Worcester County, Hospital for Behavioral Medicine is the newest mental health facility of its kind in the state of Massachusetts and is a joint venture between HBM and UMass Memorial Health Care. A short drive from the UMass Memorial Medical Center, HBM is designed to serve members of the community both near and far.
We also offer our patients an outpatient program with the goal of not interrupting their personal life or responsibilities to seek treatment. Our partial hospitalization program (or PHP for short) takes place Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM (lunch is provided), and includes: group therapy, recreation therapy, and weekly consultation with a psychiatrist. We provide this as an option for continuation of inpatient treatment or to learn more about their symptoms and receive support from peers. Receiving inpatient treatment is not a requirement for joining our outpatient services. Our outpatient services may be helpful for patients who are in need of help due to depression, anxiety, self-injury behavior, or other issues needing immediate treatment.
