about us


Ten Broeck has over 40 years of experience in providing exceptional behavioral healthcare. Founded in Louisville, Kentucky in 1984, Ten Broeck is a privately-held company headquartered in the Orlando, Florida metropolitan area.

Ten Broeck has a diverse history of partnering with the largest for-profit and faith-based healthcare systems to bring behavioral healthcare into communities. We have historically been open to providing services as part of a joint venture, management contract, or building our own freestanding hospitals. This flexibility allows Ten Broeck to provide the most beneficial delivery model to the communities we provide care in.

On several occasions, the largest publicly traded behavioral healthcare companies have sought to acquire our facilities along with the talented medical staff that we have recruited. But we have continued to remain private, holding true to our commitments and bringing the promise of healing to our patients, families and communities.

Ten Broeck’s expertise spans all age and demographic groups including child/adolescent, adult and geriatric care, as well as specialty care for PTSD, substance abuse and eating disorders. Ten Broeck provides services across the continuum of care from inpatient hospitalization to intensive outpatient (IOP) and individual counseling services and medication management.

At Ten Broeck, we strive to bring balance back to the lives of those afflicted with all forms of mental illness as well as to their loved ones.

Current Operations

Ten Broeck currently operates in eight states and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Presently, our operations consist of “hospital within a hospital” model, where we are a tenant of major acute care hospitals but provide services as an entirely separate entity.

Ten Broeck operates physicians’ practices that provide physician services and medical directorship to partner hospitals. Ten Broeck is also managing proprietary child/adolescent beds at the leading Caribbean pediatric specialty hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Ten Broeck also offers turn-key outpatient services at community hospitals. We recently completed the design and new construction of a 75-bed, free-standing behavioral health campus located in Florida, and we continue to pursue new opportunities that can improve patient outcomes and impact communities.

Ten Broeck Healthcare is owned and operated by United Medical Corporation (UMC), a privately-held organization with a diverse portfolio of healthcare-related businesses and professionals. For over 30 years, UMC has been focused on providing quality care along the behavioral health spectrum. Since its founding, UMC has been singularly focused on improving people’s lives, and innovating across the behavioral and medical fields. They continue to invest and develop in a wide variety of areas, including advanced research, skilled nursing, medical equipment, physician practices, addiction medication, therapies and more.
