Parkview Behavioral Health Hospital

Parkview is dedicated to reinvesting throughout the region by providing services and hospital programs that improve the health of our community.


Parkview Behavioral Health is the area’s only provider of inpatient services for children and adolescents, and to offer inpatient services for adults of all ages suffering from emotional, behavioral or chemical dependency problems.

Whether short-term supervised treatment is needed, or the illness or disability is more complex, experienced mental health professionals are ready to assist with the appropriate level of treatment.

You have an opportunity to participate in that mission by volunteering. Positions, such as medical, technical and administrative support staff, are available to complement the interests, abilities and schedules of volunteers.

Volunteering enables you to:

  • Give back to the community

  • Make a difference in someone’s life

  • Develop new skills

  • Strengthen your resumé

  • Explore new areas of interest 

  • Be involved in causes you care about
