Welcome to Peninsula Behavioral Health

Peninsula, a division of Parkwest Medical Center, has set a new standard for effective, innovative and caring psychiatric services in East Tennessee. With a combined total of more than 75 years of experience, Peninsula organizations have helped thousands of people recover from disorders and dependencies, and lead healthy, positive and productive lives.

The area’s leading psychiatric providers came together in 1996 to provide cost-effective and high-quality care to children, adolescents and adults. This consolidation increased access to care, enhanced quality, and improved efficiency. A leader in the changing healthcare environment, Peninsula is truly committed to improving the health of the people and communities it serves.

Peninsula is more than just buildings. We are people with a strong commitment to caring, quality programs and service. Peninsula is dedicated to maintaining a high level of professionalism for employees by offering ongoing training and educational opportunities.
