The Regional Behavioral Health Center (RBHC) 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 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.
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. RBHC strives to provide care for the whole person; mind, body, and spirit.
The RBHC 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 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.
Northern Hills patients may access services at Spearfish Regional Hospital.
