Fort Washington (Philadelphia),
Brooke Glen Behavioral Hospital (BGBH) is located on an 11-acre campus in picturesque Fort Washington, Pa., a small suburban town of Philadelphia. Our 146-bed facility provides a safe and comfortable environment for patients suffering from mental illness and behavioral disorders.
Founded in 1966, BGBH has been a long-time neighbor to this quiet suburb. Through the years, our commitment to safe, effective, quality mental health services has continued, and today we are proud to offer unique and individualized programming that sets us apart from many other behavioral hospitals. We actively participate in the community by providing education for increasing the awareness of psychological issues and challenges faced by those suffering with mental illness.
BGBH is led by physicians, doctoral level clinicians, psychologists and senior clinical staff, all of whom are recognized for their expertise in mental illness and the inherent special needs of an acute inpatient setting.
In addition, BGBH supports continued education training and graduate level opportunities for training. BGBH is host to medical students, masters and doctoral psychology students, and other multi-discipline opportunities. Promoting training and education allows for a more robust treatment experience for patients and creates an atmosphere of learning and growth for our employees.
