Today, NCHS has a primary responsibility to operate River Bend Hospital, which is a private inpatient psychiatric hospital, licensed and certified by the Indiana Department of Mental Health.

Grants are awarded to organizations for projects that relate to health and healthy communities.
River Bend Hospital is licensed by the Indiana Department of Mental Health as a private psychiatric hospital. Inpatient care is provided to adults by behavioral medicine specialists including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, activity therapists, and nurse professionals. They are well supported by others in the health profession and together create a therapeutic environment designed for short-term intervention and mental health enhancement.
River Bend Hospital accepts patients from throughout North Central Indiana and works cooperatively with others in behavioral health organizations to create a competent, caring environment for improving and restoring the mental health of our citizens.
