Additional Comments South Beach Psychiatric Center (SBPC) is seeking a dynamic recovery-oriented psychiatrist to fill the position of Clinical Director, Psychiatric Center, who will be the Chief Medical Officer of a flagship facility of a nationally renowned public mental health system with inpatient, outpatient, residential, and crisis-based services for adult and child clients in New York City. A successful applicant will have strong leadership skills to promote high quality evidence-based psychiatric services; proven experience in the field of behavioral health treatment; and a passion for working with individuals with serious mental illness.

SBPC’s services include inpatient care (225 adult inpatient beds and 10 adolescent inpatient beds); a new inpatient unit devoted to medically complex individuals; psychiatric rehabilitation services; three Transitional Living Residences; and a wide range of community-based services including four outpatient clinics in Brooklyn, one outpatient clinic and a Children and Youth Day Treatment Program on campus in Staten Island, mobile outreach, and Assertive Community Treatment teams.
