Hospital/Program Description

Valley Behavioral Health offers a 26 bed general adult psychiatric unit at Winchester Medical Center and two off-site Structured Outpatient Programs for Seniors (Winchester and Shenandoah Memorial Hospital in Woodstock, VA). A 10 Bed Inpatient Psychiatric Program for Seniors is under development, and is expected to open in early 2016.

Our Inpatient Program is an intensive, crisis stabilization program serving a wide spectrum of psychiatric disorders. We have a team of three Psychiatrists, and patients engage in daily milieu therapy with Psychiatric Clinicians, Activities Therapists and Psychiatric RN’s. ECT is offered.


Our beautiful and historic Valley is located within a compact 200-mile region stretching from Harpers Ferry, WV to Roanoke, VA, and is majestically bordered by the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Alleghenies to the west.  Winchester is a rising star in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and is just close enough to the ever-expanding D.C. area.  It has also become a favorite for anyone needing a city just once in a while. The strategic location allows individuals to also get to New York in 4 hours or just about any other major eastern city by Dulles Airport.
