It is our belief that quality mental health is essential to leading a healthy life and to the development and realization of every person’s full potential. All of us at Rolling Hills Hospital are proud of our contribution to helping individuals with psychiatric illness lead fulfilling and productive lives.
As a progressive acute care hospital, I believe our greatest asset is our adaptability and specialty mental health services. With a comprehensive continuum of care, treating individuals on an inpatient and outpatient basis, our hospital remains strategically positioned for serving those that need our care most. We are passionate about promoting Mental Health Awareness while delivering the services that directly improve wellbeing. Here at Rolling Hills; we truly have dedicated and highly credentialed professionals who excel in, what we refer to, as the ’Art of Caring’.
As we approach our 5 year anniversary as Williamson County’s only free standing psychiatric facility, we remain proud of our clinical reputation and focused on the achievements ahead.
