Behavioral Health

The Regional Health Behavioral Health Center is a psychiatric hospital located on the west side of Rapid City. A wide range of services are available for geriatric, adult, adolescent and child patients. We approach our patient care with a special emphasis on a biological, psychological, and social model.

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment opportunities are available for patients ages 5 and older. All patients will be psychiatrically assessed and treated by a licensed and board-certified psychiatrist. Additionally, experienced nurses and patient care technicians are available to provide individual specialized attention 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Inpatient Services

Specialized services include group and individual therapy, diagnostic testing, psychological evaluations, and family therapy. Occupational Therapists evaluate and treat patients with special needs while our trained Recreational Therapists provide a healing and therapeutic environment. Intensive care management is available to coordinate external services for the hospitalized patient. The hospital's clergy is available upon patient request or a patient's own spiritual leader is welcome to provide comfort. RHBHC strives to provide care for the whole person; mind, body, and spirit.

The RHBHC outpatient clinic offers psychiatric diagnostic interviewing and medication management for patients of all ages.

Please contact us with questions.

If hospitalization is required, patients are provided a full physical examination and medical evaluation at the Regional Health Rapid City Regional Hospital Emergency Department prior to hospitalization. Please proceed to the Emergency Department first, or call local law enforcement or 9-1-1 if emergent treatment is needed.
