Acute care services range from emergency care to post surgical recovery and other short-term medical condition. Sharp Mesa Vista also provides a wide range of healthcare services. In particular, the Mental Healthcare facility provides services regarding substance abuse, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, eating and behavioral disorders. It caters to adults, children, and adolescents while providing both cognitive and dual recovery treatment. Lastly, Promise Hospital, a long term care facility, provides care to those who are not able to care for themselves and for an indefinite amount of time, for example; individuals that are in renal failure and will require dialysis, or life support. These needs are best suited in a facility that have the necessary equipment and staff support.
