MiraVista and TaraVista Behavioral Health Centers

Our Story Is Inspiring

TaraVista Behavioral Health Center is a free standing specialty hospital providing acute psychiatric care to children, adolescents and adults. We are a young, vibrant and growing health care organization. When our doors opened in 2016, we filled a crucial need for inpatient mental health care in the community, in particular, for child and adolescent services.

Starting a psychiatric hospital from “scratch” afforded us a rare opportunity to create something extraordinary for our patients and their families and for our staff.  Throughout the process, we were able to incorporate the best practices in psychiatric care to support our person-centered approach to treatment.


Our team of caregivers consists of professionals who have devoted their careers to the field of behavioral health and to breaking down the stigma associated with seeking care. The staff members are highly skilled in their respective professions and bring a valuable combination of knowledge and expertise to their roles in this medical specialty.

The hospital's inception came at a critical time when the community was witnessing an increase in demand for mental health care which has been further exacerbated by the pandemic. Today, TaraVista plays an essential role in our community's mental health system.

Located in Devens, Massachusetts, TaraVista is easily accessible from I-495, I-290 and Route 2. While our primary catchment area is Worcester and Middlesex counties we also serve patients throughout the Commonwealth and Southern New Hampshire.

The hospital was founded by Dr. Michael P. Krupa along with its sister hospital, MiraVista Behavioral Health in Holyoke. Together, they form a regional network of mental health and addiction services, providing life-saving treatment to over 10,000 patients annually.

Care. Reimagined. This powerful phrase grounds us and guide us as we help patients of all ages chart a path towards a brighter future - often a future they never thought possible before entering treatment. Each day they inspire us to create the caring culture that is TaraVista. We hope they will inspire you.
