For Clinicians

An Environment of Collaboration

We believe that successful patient outcomes can only be achieved through close collaboration with you, the referring clinician. We strive to maintain our position among top rated private hospitals so that you will feel confident referring your patients to us. And we work hard to maintain your trust through timely communication, as your patients move through their recovery with us.

Our staff includes 15 board-certified psychiatrists working in a consultative team setting. Each is highly credentialed, and together they have an uncommon degree of expertise, experience and sensitivity. This means that your confidence in us on behalf of your patients can extend across not only a wide spectrum of disorders, but also throughout levels of severity from single diagnosis to the most complex presentations.

Power of Teams

Chief Clinical Officer, Dr. Michael Groat talks about the power of teams at Silver Hill. 

Our Expertise

The healing environment of Silver Hill combines the peacefulness of our beautiful campus with expert and comprehensive care. The grounds of Silver Hill feature six treatment centers in seven well-appointed houses for Adults, Adolescents, and Executives and Professionals.

The conditions we treat include substance abuse, anxiety disorders,  depression, bipolar disorder, bipolar disorder with psychotic features, substance induced psychosis, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia, and schizoaffective disorder.

As a full service psychiatric hospital we are uniquely positioned to treat co-occurring disorders. And our three levels of care on one campus means that patients are able to transition seamlessly from Inpatient treatment to on-campus Transitional Living programs to Outpatient care, depending on their current level of need.
