We deliver hope to our patients through the delivery of comprehensive and dedicated treatment programs. Our focus and commitment on service excellence is available across several states and in different care settings. Our team ensures you receive the required care that you or your loved one needs. We offer several programs for our patients including inpatient acute treatment and residential treatment. You are not alone, we are here to help.
Perimeter Healthcare was founded to make a difference in patients' lives. We do not want to just “go through the motions” of treatment. We plan to have the best clinical staff and a loving and supportive team of associates. Our goal is to help each patient heal and to give them their life back.
Our caring staff is a key ingredient in making our Perimeter facilities a place where families look to have their mental health needs addressed. Our nurses and mental health techs ensure our patients have round the clock supervision and our psychiatrists have experience specializing in child, adolescent, adult, and geriatric psychiatry. We also have internist and pediatricians on staff to monitor the medical needs of our patients and residents.
Every day, we focus on a team approach that includes daily patient interaction with a psychiatrist and our compassionate nursing staff, family sessions coordinated through our social workers and groups focused on healing and recovery. Our activity therapists are continually adding new programs to engage patients in recreational activities and art therapy that will help increase their progress.
Our goal is to help make each patient’s experience, from admission to discharge, as pleasant as possible and to give our patients the tools necessary to lead a safe and contented life. It is all about making each patient better and getting them back on the road to recovery. If you or someone you know is seeking a place for hope and transformation, Perimeter is here to help.
THANK YOU!!!! You and your staff went above and beyond to accommodate mine and my daughters needs while I was there. Seriously, we got the V.I.P. treatment.
Enthusiastic health system administrator set to lead the hospital to a new level.
Springfield, MO - Perimeter Healthcare is delighted to announce the appointment of Robert Marsh as the new CEO of Perimeter Behavioral Hospital of Springfield. Robert’s passion for working with at risk children and years of experience has led him to a position where he oversees the acute inpatient facility in Springfield, MO and two residential facilities in Arkansas; Perimeter of the Ozarks, and Perimeter Forrest City.
Very early on in his career, Robert recognized he wanted to help make a difference in children's lives. He feels there is nothing more rewarding then having a young man or young woman come into his care and be able to get the help they need to lead a productive life. He has worked as floor staff, coaching baseball for at risk youth from inner cities, and was a Program Director for an all-girls program in Arizona. Robert played baseball for Highland Community College and graduated from Bellevue University where he earned a bachelor’s in social service administration, master’s in public administration and an additional master’s in healthcare administration.
“It's very humbling to see how my education and work experience have come together to afford me the opportunity to be a CEO. I'm grateful for the support my wife and family have lent me in pursuing my goals both academically and professionally,” he said. “Joining an organization like Perimeter Healthcare has been a dream come true. I'm looking forward to opportunities to continue growing with this organization and within the healthcare industry.”
Mr. Marsh recognizes the importance of community involvement as a necessary ingredient for a successful program and without the support, it is much more difficult to truly impact the lives of youth in need. In addition, he ensures the mental health care, education, and well-being of patients at the facility is first and foremost of his team’s daily routine.
Robert has a busy life outside of work keeping up with his wife and two small daughters who are his inspiration. As a family they like to go to the zoo, fish and find new trails to hike.
Your passion, inspiration, and talents are invaluable to us and our mission to serve our patients and families. Our facilities can provide a place for you to thrive and continue your professional development. Quality Healthcare is our passion, providing hope and transforming lives is our reward.
