Interventional Neurology

Indian River Medical Center’s neuro-interventionalist team provides advanced treatment for ischemic strokes using a procedure known as mechanical thrombectomy, a technique that has revolutionized stroke care in the United States. Each patient’s recovery is individualized, but research clearly shows the procedure has positive results for one of every three patients if treated within 24 hours.

The Behavioral Health Center (BHC) at IRMC provides inpatient services for children, adolescents, adults and seniors.

Thousands of Treasure Coast residents have been helped back to the path of hope, happiness and a better quality of life through the center’s inpatient and outpatient treatment, counseling services, classes and screenings.

As part of IRMC we are uniquely qualified to combine expert behavioral health service with comprehensive medical care, including a full complement of diagnostic services.

The 46-bed facility, located on a beautiful campus across the street from the main hospital, includes a gym, pool, shaded courtyards, bright airy rooms and both an indoor and outdoor physical challenge course for experiential learning (ROPES).

OUR TEAM

Our therapeutic team is interdisciplinary and includes board certified psychiatrists, experienced RNs, creative therapists and licensed social workers.

A distinct advantage of having the BHC as part of IRMC is the availability to provide staff hospitalists and specialists to monitor patients for other medical issues. Our trained professionals offer screening and assessment for behavioral health issues 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The assessment provides an opportunity to share any issues that may be troubling you or a loved one with an expert in mental health.

Our clinicians, in consultation with our medical staff, will make recommendations to best suit your needs. These may range from community-based support services to short term inpatient hospitalization.

The BHC at IRMC is committed to providing free screenings for behavioral health issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Substance abuse

We also provide education to the community on a variety of mental health issues and substance abuse topics.
