Why KVC Hospitals?

  • Innovative, trauma-informed treatment based on evidence-based research
  • Inclusive admissions policy (no reject/no eject)
  • Strong measurable outcomes
  • Industry-leading use of electronic medical records to improve patient care
  • Positive endorsements from referral partners, patients and families

Our psychiatric hospitals provide the full continuum of care and services around the clock to treat children with individual behavioral problems including suicidal thoughts and actions, severe aggression and psychosis. The hospitals specialize in using Trauma Systems Therapy for in-patient care; all direct care professionals are fully trained in TST which, for example, approaches each youth asking “what happened to this child?” and seeking to heal the core problems, as opposed to simply addressing only the symptoms.
