Welcome from CEO of Our Behavioral Health Hospital


Hello, I am Tom Ryba, CEO of Lighthouse Behavioral Health Hospital, and I want to personally thank you for taking the time to visit our web site.

As the only freestanding mental health & behavioral health hospital in Horry, Georgetown, and Williamsburg counties we stand committed to providing the highest quality, patient-centered care for those in our community. Our psychiatrists specialize in the treatment of our patients. Together with a comprehensive interdisciplinary treatment team we work closely with our patients and their families to restore dignity and hope.

At Lighthouse Behavioral Health our staff understands that the priorities of safety, compassion, and respect as well as integrity and accountability are paramount to successful treatment. Our goal is to provide a therapeutic environment that is conducive to treatment and recovery.

I hope you will take the time to view the information on this site about our various programs. If you need us “Help is just a call away.”
