Review by Contributors


Providing compassionate, quality health care services to “all those in need,” the nonprofit Methodist Hospitals group operates three hospitals - two in Gary and one in Merrillville, Ind. - as well as numerous physician clinics and other facilities in northwestern Indiana. At its Northlake Campus, in central Gary, Methodist Hospital provides outpatient counseling services for adults and teens who are struggling with emotional, behavioral, and substance use disorders.

Methodist also offers 28 beds cumulatively for adults and senior adults at its Northlake Campus, making it one of only 21 (6.9 percent) facilities in the state to offer inpatient treatment services.


The Behavioral Health Services department at Methodist aims to treat substance use disorders and provide solutions and relief from a wide range of disorders and conditions such as depression, anxiety, grief and loss, rage, and stress. At its core, treatment focuses on fulfilling a client’s emotional, mental, physical, and medication needs and promoting a healthy balance in all areas of life.

Treatment is both individualized and provided in a supportive, caring group environment. As therapy takes place in individual, group, couples', and family settings, clients can expect collaboration with their psychiatrist and time spent providing and receiving feedback from other clients. Nursing and psychiatric staff also work side by side in determining if there are any possible underlying medical issues affecting a client’s attitude and behavior.


Methodist Hospital employs a multidisciplinary team of nurses, psychiatrists, therapists, and social workers. The single individual surveyed by to date awarded the behavioral health department three out of five stars for its staff's level of training and experience.


While has yet to receive any reviews from alumni of Methodist Hospital’s outpatient behavioral health department, secondary sites yielded mixed feedback about this location of Methodist Hospital as a whole.

To date, the hospital in Gary has a 2.9-star average rating based on 62 Google reviews, and a 2.4-star average rating based on nine Yelp reviews. Those unsatisfied with the treatment they received consistently cited long wait times and poor treatment from hospital staff. “Horrendous experience with this facility; there are knowledgeable Nurses, but many are rude and discourteous,” wrote Gregory in a representative statement on Google. E.R., another reviewer, claimed that Methodist was “by far the WORST hospital” they’ve ever been to.[1][2]

Yet others spoke highly of the hospital and its staff. “They were wonderful. The nurses were amazing kind and helpful, there was never anything that they didn't explain or offer help with,” wrote Yelp reviewer L.R., referring specifically to the psych department.


“They treated my sister well,um program did work for her&she had a great experience overall,” the single loved one polled by wrote. Despite the positive sentiment, they also felt that there were “[not] many options for treatment.” The anonymous loved one gave three out of five stars for its treatment effectiveness and its holistic offerings, and four stars for its family programming, counseling options, and capacity to treat co-occurring disorders.


Methodist Hospitals accept Medicaid, Medicare, TriCare, and most private insurances as well as self-pay, making it one of 184 (60.3 percent) facilities in the state that accept Medicaid and one of 172 (56.4 percent) that accept Medicare. The hospital also offers financial assistance to those with limited resources.

The survey respondent gave the center four out of five stars for its affordability.
