Inpatient Behavioral Health Hospital: Since 2008, Cannon Memorial Hospital has provided a safe and secure space for mental health patients who perhaps would have nowhere to go, or would have to travel a distance to find help. Our recently established independent, freestanding Appalachian Regional Health Hospital will extend that to even more patients in the years to come.
