Our History

Northbrook - Past to Present

  • Procurement

    The Board of Chosen Freeholders of Gloucester County "procures (sic) a poorhouse in the County . . . to enable all persons who are a public charge to be provided for by said County. . . in the amount of $5,600." A psychiatric care facility was eventually constructed on the present site. Over the years, the facility evolved to include additional buildings providing a broader range of healthcare services to address the population's changing needs.


  • Construction

    In 1924 construction for a tuberculosis care facility began; in the 1950s the tuberculosis hospital was converted to a long-term care facility.


  • Groundbreaking

    A groundbreaking ceremony for the Camden County Health Services Center, a 226,000 square-foot state-of-the-art center housing all clinical and support services previously spread over nine separate buildings.


  • Acquired by Ocean Healthcare

    In 2013 the facility was purchased by Ocean Healthcare, a family owned and operated entity, and the former CCHSC was divided into two distinct entities under one roof. The skilled nursing facility was named Elmwood Hills Healthcare Center, and the Acute Psychiatric Care Hospital is called Northbrook Behavioral Health Hospital.


  • Present

    Ocean Healthcare proudly continues to uphold the original mission of delivering outstanding and compassionate psychiatric care and striving to constantly improve the scope and efficiency of services.
