- MCHC began integrating our behavioral health services into our medical care because we recognized that patients with the most challenges had underlying—and often untreated—mental health conditions. These collaborative efforts improved our ability to understand our patients’ barriers to health and to respond to their needs with agility. Today, we depend on cross-discipline communication to develop new treatment strategies, meeting clinical and patient goals more quickly.
- Our Care for Her team topped 300 births for the year, which represented a 10 percent increase from the previous year and meant we were now delivering a third of all babies born at our local Ukiah hospital.
- We significantly expanded psychiatric services.
