Since 1974 Edgewater Systems for Balanced Living, Inc. (Edgewater), has been providing mental health services for the most vulnerable individuals and families in and around Gary and Northwest Indiana. In 2017, Edgewater changed its name to Edgewater Health to promote our expansion into primary care, our designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) look alike, and to clarify our mission and purpose. Edgewater Health is certified to provide mental health and substance abuse treatment services by the State of Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, Division of Mental Health and Addiction. Edgewater is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
We provide comprehensive physical and behavioral healthcare services for individuals and their families in Northwest Indiana. Culturally competent care, specifically developed for each patient, will help each person to achieve their goals and improve outcomes. By improving the lives of individuals, we hope to create a "ripple effect" that will contribute to the quality of life and overall well-being of our entire community. After all, we are all in life together!
Edgewater Health is eternally optimistic about the health of the people we serve. Our vision is to continue to develop and deliver the best quality behavioral and physical healthcare available anywhere in our area. This includes the development of evidence-based treatment tactics specifically for African American and Hispanic populations. We create better health across communities and deliver services which positively impact our patients.
