Welcome to Norwood Health Center

Any of us could potentially face difficult times in life. Nothing can be more confusing or overwhelming than when people and their families are struggling with a chronic or acute mental illness or the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury.

Norwood Health Center, located in the Wood County Annex and Health Center, provides residents of Wood and surrounding counties with high-quality treatment services which include acute, inpatient psychiatric care, skilled long-term care for persons with chronic, severe mental illness, as well as post-acute traumatic brain injury rehabilitation services.

Close affiliations with other care providers exist which afford Norwood clients access to superior general and specialized medical and diagnostic services. Since Norwood is part of Wood County, we also have close ties with the outpatient mental health community and programs including case management, community counseling and treatment services.

Norwood Health Center is owned by Wood County with oversight by the Wood County Health and Human Services Board. Referrals and questions about admission can be directed to the Client Services Director by calling 715-384-2188.

Bridgeway Crisis Diversion Program, also located on the premises, and operated by Lutheran Social Services, is a residential environment where individuals with less acute mental health concerns can choose to stay while getting help before returning home.
