The Asante Inpatient Behavioral Health unit was remodeled and expanded in 2020 to address the growing need for acute mental health care in Southern Oregon. The facility now:
Offers 24 beds, a courtyard garden and calming spaces for patients.
Employs the Sanctuary Model, an evidence-based and trauma-informed approach to care.
Instead of asking a patient, “What’s wrong with you?” we ask, “What’s happened to you?” This model focuses on providing healing environments in which patients can overcome the root causes of their issues.
