Telecare is partnering with CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System (San Antonio, Texas) to manage the new CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Senior Behavioral Health Center at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital - Medical Center. With an anticipated opening scheduled for early summer 2013, the Center will provide short-term (7-14 days) inpatient services for adults experiencing a mental health crisis. The Senior Behavioral Health Center will serve individuals aged 65 and older with a primary psychiatric illness.
"We are delighted to offer our broad geropsychiatric experience to CHRISTUS Santa Rosa and to be a valued partner as they bring these new and essential high quality, leading edge mental health services to the aging adult community whom they serve," said Anne Bakar, Chief Executive Officer of Telecare Corporation.
The Senior Behavioral Health Center will complement other senior services already offered at the Medical Center facility, such as the CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Acute Center for Elderly (ACE) Program.
