Message from the CEO, Dan Zarecky
I have had the privilege of working in the behavioral health field for more than 30 years. Over this time, I have witnessed a significant increase in the severity of symptoms presented by those struggling with mental illness we serve. Complex mental health diagnoses combined with psychosocial, familial and behavioral problems have heightened the treatment needs of individuals.
I know it can be a frightening prospect to be a patient in a hospital, and it can be a tremendously helpless feeling to put your wellbeing or the wellbeing of a loved one in the hands of people you do not know. I want to assure you that Lancaster Behavioral Health Hospital is committed to providing the highest level of quality patient care. We have an amazing group of doctors and staff who care about our patients and are committed to service excellence. Our multidisciplinary team includes physicians, nurses, and mental health clinicians. We offer inpatient treatment for adults and adolescents who need structure, treatment, and support to overcome depression, anxiety, family conflicts, suicidal ideation, and reactions to stress and trauma. Our programs utilize Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
At Lancaster Behavioral Health Hospital, our mission is “transforming lives through exceptional patient care.” We intentionally recruit and hire staff members who share our core values of Integrity, Safety, Relationships, Compassion, and Growth. We understand you have many choices for healthcare services, and we strive to instill the importance of customer service throughout all of our departments. We have the tremendous privilege as healthcare professionals to provide support to our neighbors when they are going through some of the most vulnerable times in their lives. Our purpose is to improve the quality of life for every person who comes through our doors and elevate the communities we are able to touch.
