Findings from the American Hospital Association show that hospitals with clinical training programs are an integral part of the mental health community. By investing in the future of healthcare providers and conducting medical research, they are indispensable in providing quality patient care. By creating an environment for students to continue to practice their skills in treating patients in a psychiatric treatment setting, we believe Hartgrove will continue to be a place of collaborative exchange, new ideas and thoughtful discourse. We offer a team approach to patient care by learning from one another.
