Mission & Vision
The mission of Patrick B. Harris Psychiatric Hospital (HPH), a facility of South Carolina Department of Mental Health (SCDMH) is to provide intensive, short-term, inpatient diagnosis and treatment for mental illness to the citizens of thirteen counties of upstate South Carolina. We utilize a multidiscipline team approach for treatment planning, implementation, coordination of total care, and continuity of aftercare. These services are provided with the least amount of patient restriction and maximum opportunities for each person's recovery.
Harris Hospital will become recognized regionally and eventually nationally as a center of excellence in the provision of mental health services. Among the mental health centers it serves, it will be recognized as a steadfast partner in patient recovery and a reliable support in fulfilling the goals set for them by the agency.
For patients and families, Harris Hospital will continue to enhance its reputation for quality care, compassionately and courteously given to patients and families in crisis. For staff, Harris Hospital will be known as an organization that values its employees and their contribution to the organization.
