About Heritage Oaks

In light of all that is occurring in our country right now, Heritage Oaks Hospital (HOH) remains committed to our mission of healing through both our professional experience and, just as important, a shared sense of hope. Now more than ever, caring for each other is paramount and we can only truly do this if we take time to care for ourselves too. In the behavioral health field, we know that isolation and separation are triggers for relapse. We are also aware that isolation and separation are running rampant right now. This current situation calls for connection and fellowship to help promote inclusivity and compassion. Our team at HOH pledges to do its part to bring healing to the individuals who turn to us and thereby promote the hope that we so desperately need right now.
