Our Lady of Peace is one of the country’s largest private, non-profit psychiatric hospitals. Our Lady of Peace, part of KentuckyOne Health, is a private, non-profit psychiatric hospital. Founded in 1951 by the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, the 220-bed hospital is one of the largest behavioral health facilities in the nation, providing care for children, adolescents and adults. Its Kosair Charities Children’s Peace Center is the largest and most comprehensive private provider of youth inpatient behavioral health services in the country. Peace operates a full continuum of behavioral health and substance use services for patients, including specialty programs for children and adolescents who have complex treatment needs, such as intellectual or developmental disabilities, forensic issues for females, and/or co-occurring substance use issues. The hospital was the nation’s first behavioral health care center to open a retail pharmacist-operated, long-acting injection clinic. The clinic was established to help people adhere to prescribed medications for behavioral health conditions, such as drug addiction and schizophrenia.
