Colorado Mental Health Institute Pueblo

Colorado Mental Health Institute Pueblo (CMHIP) is a 449-bed hospital that provides inpatient behavioral health services for adults, adolescents and geriatric patients. CMHIP is a forensic hospital that serves individuals with pending criminal charges who require evaluations of competency, individuals who have been found by a court to be incompetent to proceed (restoration treatment) and individuals found to be not guilty by reason of insanity. Patients' families, friends and loved ones are encouraged to visit and maintain relationships with patients while hospitalized.

CMHIP is located in southern Colorado on a 300-acre campus. As one of Pueblo's largest employers, we offer career opportunities in many multi-disciplinary professions, including nursing, psychology, social work and medicine. CMHIP is accredited through the Joint Commission.
