Catawba Hospital

About us

We provide creative solutions that gets the attention of our global clients.


Catawba Hospital is more than just a hospital; it is a sanctuary. Surrounded by the beautiful mountains and woodlands of southwest Virginia, Catawba is a place of shelter from unhealthy or unnecessary influences. It’s a place to gain a better understanding of one’s own mental health and to learn techniques and treatments for overcoming challenges.

Catawba Hospital is a family. Each member of the team brings his or her unique skills and experience to the treatment of those with mental illness. Our staff, many with years of experience on this campus, operate with a mutual respect and trust for colleagues, and the patient experience is better for it.

Catawba Hospital is a temporary home. Catawba is an inpatient psychiatric facility with 110 beds that provides comprehensive mental health services including assessment, treatment, and discharge planning. Catawba serves adult patients 18 years and older, with specialized expertise in the treatment of geriatric patients.

Catawba Hospital provides the highest standard of professional care. Individualized treatment is provided through interdisciplinary teams (including psychiatry, nursing, internal medicine, social work, psychology, substance abuse, psychosocial rehabilitation, pharmacy, and dietary). Programs in a newly designed treatment mall emphasize psychiatric rehabilitation, recovery from mental illness, and re-integration into the community. Catawba is a Joint Commission accredited facility, certified by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Catawba Hospital is a place to learn. Catawba serves as a clinical placement site for students from all disciplines and over a dozen colleges, universities, and schools. Our expert staff provide supervision and mentorships to schools and universities regionally and our doctors have multiple academic affiliations and professorships serving as faculty at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and the Carilion and Lewis-Gale residency programs.

Catawba Hospital is part of a greater network of community partners. Our team serves as a resource in areas such as forensic evaluation and in providing comprehensive mental health services in the least restrictive setting.
