Behavioral Health Unit Update
September 4, 2018 – Hillcrest Hospital Cushing temporarily suspended operations on its behavioral health unit. While an official reopening date has not been determined yet, a tentative timeframe of early 2019 is planned.
Message from Kevin Hawk, CEO of Hillcrest Hospital Cushing:
"A combination of challenges has made it clear that we need to temporarily suspend departmental operations with the goal of reopening the Behavioral Health service line in early 2019. We commit each and every day to providing the highest level of care possible to our patients and their families. When challenges arise that jeopardize our ability to meet that commitment, we must make the difficult decisions to ensure that we’re doing right by our patients and each other. This decision is an example of a process that is never easy nor entered into lightly.”
During the temporary closure inquiries about behavioral health services will be referred to Hillcrest Hospital Claremore. For more information, please call their 24/7 behavioral health support line at
