CENTER CITY, Minn., Sept. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation announced today that CenterPointe Hospital, a Missouri-based psychiatric hospital and mental health and addiction treatment provider, has joined the Hazelden Betty Ford Patient Care Network—the most expansive network of its kind in the behavioral healthcare industry.
CenterPointe, which has facilities in St. Charles, Columbia and St. Louis, provides a comprehensive continuum of care, offering a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services for adolescents, adults and senior adults as well as active-duty military personnel, veterans and first responders.
"As we continue to look for quality providers in areas where our patients and callers need continued treatment and services, we couldn't be more pleased to invite CenterPointe Hospital to join this important initiative," said Bob Poznanovich, vice president of business development for Hazelden Betty Ford, the nation's largest nonprofit provider of integrated addiction and mental health care. "CenterPointe Hospital meets a unique need for patients who require acute care stabilization, and their robust continuum will add a lot to our Patient Care Network."
"We are very excited about this collaboration with a renowned and well-established addiction treatment organization such as the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation," said Scott Williams, CEO of CenterPointe Hospital. "This is clearly an organization that places a great emphasis on the quality, integrity and ethics of the services they provide, and we share those values. To meet our goal of providing better and better care, we feel it's imperative to collaborate transparently with other high-quality providers, sharing best practices and feedback."
As a member of the Hazelden Betty Ford Patient Care Network, CenterPointe Hospital will have access to tools and collaborative consultation for its leaders, staff, patients and families, as well as the communities it serves. The growing network, launched in late 2017, facilitates shared learnings and collaboration among its members while also extending the continuum of care for each organization.
"The Patient Care Network helps our patients connect more readily with other quality care providers throughout the country after they transition out of our programs," said Hazelden Betty Ford's Poznanovich. "Together, with collaborative members like CenterPointe Hospital, we're able to extend long-term engagement in care and support, a key aspect of improved outcomes for patients with mental health and substance use disorders."
