Willow Creek Behavioral Health is a 72-bed hospital, the largest in northern Wisconsin, accredited to provide effective care for those suffering from acute behavioral and mental health challenges. Our facility has separate units for children ages 5-11, adolescents, adults and seniors. 

We provide an assessment, diagnosis and rapid stabilization of acute psychiatric issues. Hospitalization at Willow Creek provides a safe, structured environment in times of crisis. We provide around-the-clock care with physician supervision, medication management and group therapy, seven days a week. 

To assist with continued recovery after a hospital stay, we assist with scheduling appointments and transitioning to less intensive, appropriate levels of follow-up care and support. 


The outpatient programs at Willow Creek Behavioral Health are a structured care environment for adults not requiring inpatient care, but having difficulty functioning in their daily routine. Patients continue to live at home, while attending the outpatient center during the day to receive the support they need. 

The group therapy programs meet 5 days a week and include private physician consultations and medication management, as needed. The length of participation in the treatment programs are matched to each person’s progress.

Admission to one of the programs follows a free psychological assessment. The programs have a tier structure, allowing transitions from inpatient care to the Partial Hospitalization Program and then to the Intensive Outpatient Program. Our assessors, physicians and therapists will determine the appropriate level of care based on individual needs.
