St. Lucie Medical Center plans to consolidate its behavioral health unit, effective Nov. 7, and will connect patients to its sister facility Lawnwood Regional Medical Center which features a robust range of mental health services.

Lawnwood Regional Medical Center offers comprehensive behavioral health services in inpatient and outpatient settings for adults and adolescents. Patients will continue to have local access to behavioral health care through existing inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services at our Treasure Coast market sister-facility, Lawnwood Regional Medical Center.

Patients arriving at St. Lucie Medical Center in need of behavioral health services will be evaluated and transferred to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center, when deemed necessary.
