Behavioral Health Provider Acquires Hospital in Crowley, Louisiana

Crowley, Louisiana – (Jan. 12, 2017) – Oceans Healthcare today announced it has acquired 16-bed Phoenix Behavioral Hospital in Crowley, Louisiana.

The facility, which has been renamed Oceans Behavioral Hospital Crowley, is a campus of  Oceans Healthcare’s existing facility, Oceans Behavioral Hospital Opelousas, and will continue serving older adult and senior patients suffering from major depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar, post-traumatic stress disorder and schizophrenia, as well as other serious behavioral health challenges associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia. The hospital will also provide intensive outpatient services for adults 18 and older.

This expansion further augments Oceans Healthcare’s status as the largest provider of inpatient behavioral health care for older adult and geriatric patients in the region.

“Our company’s roots are planted in Louisiana and we recognize the overwhelming importance for our community members to have care close to home,” said Stuart Archer, Oceans Healthcare CEO. “We’re committed to continuing to address a serious crisis in lack of inpatient behavioral health support and finding ways to expand our ability to reach individuals in need.”

Louisiana ranks 47th nationwide for mental healthcare, meaning the state has a high prevalence of mental illness and scarce access to care, according to the 2015 Mental Health America report. In fact, Louisiana ranks among only four other states (Arizona, Mississippi, Nevada and Washington) for the highest prevalence and lowest rates of access to care.

Located at 2021 Crowley Rayne Highway, Oceans Behavioral Hospital Crowley has already begun accepting new patients. Like other Oceans Healthcare affiliated facilities, 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 board-certified psychiatrists, patients are closely monitored by medical physicians to ensure overall health and well-being and to address any general medical issues.


Oceans Healthcare is a nationally recognized behavioral health provider focused on healing and long-term recovery. Founded in 2004, Oceans provides inpatient and outpatient treatment with a special focus on the unique physical and emotional needs of older adults and seniors. With 17 locations in Texas and Louisiana, Oceans hospitals are consistently recognized as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission. The company was recently named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. For more information, visit www.oceanshealthcare.com.
