TITUSVILLE, Fla., September 13, 2018 — Universal Health Services (NYSE: UHS) today announced the opening of Palm Point Behavioral Health, a new 80-bed facility that expands access to inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment across the region.

“The new Palm Point Behavioral Health will address the growing need for inpatient behavioral healthcare and will continue serving the community with vital resources well into the future,” said Debbie Osteen, UHS Executive Vice President, and President, Behavioral Health Division. “The excellent team of clinicians and staff hired at Palm Point are focused on delivering robust clinical outcomes for patients and their families.”
The facility’s dedicated child and adolescent unit and separate adult units will offer specialized treatment for individuals experiencing behavioral health issues such as depression, bipolar disorder, psychosis or substance use disorder. Another feature to be offered by the facility in the coming months is a mobile assessment team that will go into the community and respond to requests from local physician and therapist offices, urgent care centers, and school systems to provide no-cost assessments to determine if the patient should be recommended for treatment at Palm Point Behavioral Health.
