Universal Health Services is one of the nation’s largest hospital companies, operating more than 196 behavioral health facilities in 37 states, including two in Arizona. The company brings extensive behavioral health experience and best practices to this community, and is expected to provide significant organic growth for Pima County patients in terms of expanded treatment services and their body of clinical expertise. Notably, UHS will be looking to expand child and adolescent behavioral health services—an area of great need in Southern Arizona.

PVHB, along with a strong partnership with Tucson Medical Center, will build on the excellent skills of current psychiatrists, licensed registered nurses, clinical social workers and licensed professional counselors to support the new programs.
