As part of our values and mission as a non-profit, comprehensive behavioral health organization, Lifeways, Inc., acquired a 16-bed adult psychiatric acute care hospital in Boise, Idaho on January 1, 2019 from Safe Haven. The newly named Lifeways Hospital will serve the region by maintaining open psychiatric beds in an area with significant local and intrastate need for residents with severe and persistent mental illness. The hospital’s ease of access will allow families connectivity with their loved ones during inpatient psychiatric care.

Clients receive 24-hour supervision and on call emergency coverage.
