History

In 1973, Dr. Oscar Urrea, psychiatrist, began a private practice in the Monongahela Valley area.  Dr. Urrea envisioned a plan to provide comprehensive health services in Washington County, and, as a result, gradually expanded his practice to include offices in Mcmurray and Washington.  The practice became incorporated in 1988, and it was then that Psychiatric Care Systems, PC emerged and became the largest provider of behavioral health services in Washington County.  Currently, a physician assistant, nurse practitioner, twenty therapists, and Dr. Urrea himself leading the facility, Psychiatric Care Systems, PC provides optimum mental health services to thousands of individuals per year.
