Hillcrest Medical Center – Behavioral Services


Located on the 3rd floor of the Hillcrest Medical Center, a 691-bed hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a 14-bed acute care unit for adults who require immediate crisis stabilization due to mental health, substance abuse, or co-occurring issues. Medical detoxification is also provided as needed.

Hillcrest Medical Center also operates four specialized units for youth between the ages of four and 18 years on the eighth floor of the nearby OSU Medical Center campus.


Inpatient treatment at this 14-bed unit aims to stabilize adults experiencing a crisis. Reasons for admission may include hypomanic or manic behavior, excessive aggression, confusion and disorientation, and hallucinations. Stays typically last no longer than three to seven days, during which adults receive 24-hour supervision and medication management, as well as participate in expressive therapy and individual, group, and family counseling.

Programming for youth is divided into four separate units based on age: Children; Early Adolescent; Adolescent Acute; and Adolescent Residential. The Children’s unit admits children as young as four years old, while the Early Adolescent unit serves those aged nine to 13. Stays in these units can range from one to six weeks, allowing children and teenagers sufficient time to develop coping skills and build confidence necessary for success in school and relationships. Youth may also continue their education through the on-site therapeutic educational program provided by Tulsa Public Schools.


The treatment staff of the behavioral health units consists of psychiatrists, licensed therapists, registered nurses, case managers, therapeutic recreation specialists, and psychiatric technicians. The medical directors of the adult and youth units have over 15 and 20 years of experience leading their respective programs.
