Effective May 1, 2016, Panhandle Mental Health Center has changed our name

to Panhandle Health Group.



Panhandle Mental Health Center (PMHC) officially began on February 1, 1969.  At that time, the clinic was staffed by a psychiatrist, chaplain, clinical psychologist, psychiatric nurse and a secretary.  PMHC addressed the need for behavioral health community-based services in this rural setting and was the first mental health center in the State of Nebraska.

From this relatively small beginning, PMHC continues to grow both in terms of staff and the services that are provided.  Starting this year we now offer Family Practice Primary Care medical services to our consumers. And leading the charge in Nebraska to develop integrated care, we have changed our name to Panhandle Health Group (PHG) to better reflect our holistic approach to comprehensive care.

PHG’s main office is located at 4110 Avenue D in Scottsbluff, Nebraska and we maintain satellite offices in Alliance, Sidney, Kimball and coming soon HIPAA-compliant virtual therapy sessions will be available through the internet with our clinical staff here in western Nebraska.

PHG has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for over 10 years and strives to meet their standards for excellence.

PHG programs accredited by CARF are:
