Access to and affordability of behavioral health care remains a priority health need. Over the past year, we increased our investment in behavioral health by nearly 20 percent partnering with Riverbend Community Mental Health to respond to the acute needs of this patient population exacerbated by reduced acute psychiatric beds statewide.

2017 Investment

In 2017, we invested $11,734,791 in behavioral health services including expanding youth behavioral health intervention, integration of behavioral health specialists at Concord Hospital Family Health Center and several Concord Hospital Medical Group practices, and a dedicated unit in the Emergency Department to keep behavioral health patients safe while they wait for an acute care bed in a psychiatric hospital.
