Methodist Hospital Specialty and Transplant hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the expansion of its Outpatient Behavioral Health Services in a new location. The newly renovated space increases access to more patients needing mental health services.
“We are excited about what this space is going to bring to the care of our patients in an outpatient setting,” said Jeff Wilson, CEO of Methodist Hospital Specialty and Transplant. “We’ve expanded the group room capabilities, added space for virtual sessions, and have closer interaction between our inpatient and outpatient staff.”
The outpatient department is now located on the campus of Methodist Hospital Specialty and Transplant. It was previously located in a building nearby in the Medical Center. The department added group therapy rooms and expanded its intensive outpatient program, with additional days and times offered to accommodate patient schedules. The suite offers a more conducive environment to healing and recovery in the treatment of behavioral health conditions, including mood disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and substance use disorder. The space also provides more offices for virtual option delivery, including virtual assessment and virtual Intensive Outpatient services.
Methodist Hospital Specialty and Transplant Behavioral Health Services offers a Partial Hospital Program, Intensive Outpatient Program for mental health and substance abuse, as well as opioid stabilization services. Our outpatient services is one of few community programs that provides medication management oversight for all levels of care by a Psychiatrist and/or Advanced Practitioner.
