At Ascension Saint Thomas Behavioral Health Hospital, we place great value on our relationships with other healthcare professionals. By working with referral sources within the community, we are able to provide clinically superior services to a greater number of patients who are struggling with mental health and substance use disorders.
Who We Partner With
Our team makes every effort to ensure that we include referring professionals as a part of each patient’s care, when clinically appropriate.
A knowledgeable member of our admissions staff can provide assessments or speak with prospective patients, family members and referral sources about the services we provide. Patients or referral sources may walk in or reach out to an intake specialist over the phone.
While we work with any type of referring professional who has their patient’s best interests in mind, the most common sources of patient referrals include:
- Emergency departments
- Primary care physicians
- Behavioral health professionals
- Law enforcement
- Alumni sources
