Our Lady of Peace is one of the largest private, nonprofit psychiatric hospitals in the country. It treats patients with emotional, as well as behavioral, psychiatric and substance abuse disorders. The facility offers an array of specialized units and programs including short-term acute/sub-acute inpatient care and innovative alternatives such as partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs for children, adolescents and adults. The hospital was founded as an adult hospital in 1951 by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and currently operates 261 inpatient beds.

In 1989, its mission expanded to meet an overwhelming need for quality pediatric care. As a result, Our Lady of Peace is now the largest private provider of youth behavioral health services in the country and has more inpatient beds for children than any hospital in Kentucky. It offers specialty programs for children and adolescents who have complex treatment needs, such as intellectual or developmental disabilities, forensic issues and/or mental illness and cooccurring mental health and substance use disorders.
