Park Royal Hospital in Fort Myers — which provides a continuum of care including detox, inpatient and outpatient programs for adults age 18 and older who have developed mental or behavioral health disorders, including substance use disorders — has expanded, adding 12 new beds.
The expansion stems from a response to community needs after Hurricane Ian, which, according to a statement, “left many storm survivors in Southwest Florida grappling with emotional distress.”
“In the wake of COVID-19 and, most recently, Hurricane Ian, there has been a growing need for essential behavioral healthcare services in our area,” adds Amber Hentz, CEO of Park Royal Hospital, in the statement. “Our team has been able to answer the call by providing round-the-clock care for our patients as well as collaborating with valued community partners to reach more people in need of urgent support. We are dedicated to being a reliable community resource, and we look forward to serving an even greater number of individuals with the expansion of our facility.”
Park Royal, according to its website, is one “of the newest freestanding behavioral health facilities in the United States.” It offers integrated treatment and programming for adults living with addictions and behavioral health concerns, including post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, adjustment disorder and suicidal ideation. Treatment options at Park Royal include detoxification, inpatient care, a partial hospitalization program, an intensive outpatient program and electroconvulsive therapy treatment. At the inpatient level, the hospital also offers specialized programming for older adults who have been struggling with certain age-related concerns.
