Facility specializes in treating underserved population of older adults and seniors
San Marcos, Texas – (July 23, 2015) – Oceans Healthcare, a behavioral health provider focused on the healing and long-term recovery of older adults and seniors, and SRP Medical, a healthcare investment and development company, are proud to announce the expansion of behavioral health services in San Marcos with the opening of Oceans Behavioral Hospital San Marcos.
Located at 1106 N Interstate 35, the recently renovated, 20,000 square-foot facility will begin accepting patients August 3. The 24-bed hospital will employ 36 individuals across the healthcare spectrum including nurses, therapists, social workers and support staff.
“Oceans Healthcare has a singular focus and that is to provide high-quality behavioral health services for the most vulnerable members of our communities,” said Stuart Archer, CEO. “Behavioral health is an often misunderstood illness, and we hope that by expanding our services into new communities we are able to serve those in need, educate the public, and, ultimately, improve attitudes toward behavioral health treatment. We are proud to partner with SRP Medical in San Marcos, the nation’s fastest-growing city, to improve the health and well-being of its senior population. ”
Oceans Behavioral Hospital San Marcos will provide high-quality, personalized and safe care to adult patients 55 and older who may be experiencing mood and behavior disturbances or progressive, degenerative mental illnesses.
Because the hospital focuses exclusively on treating seniors and older adults, the hospital’s care team has a keen understanding of the needs of this growing population. Unlike many other behavioral health providers, the hospital places extreme importance on addressing medical conditions that may be directly or indirectly related to behavioral health needs. In addition to receiving care from a board-certified psychiatrist, patients are closely monitored by medical physicians to ensure overall health and well-being and to address any general medical issues.
“SRP is excited to partner with Oceans in helping create an exceptional facility that approaches senior behavioral health in a holistic and compassionate way,” said Scott Wilson, managing principal at SRP Medical. “There is a growing need for specialty hospitals like Oceans Behavioral Hospital San Marcos that address the acute behavioral health needs of seniors, and we want to fill that void.”
