Scope: Emergency Department Expansion
Client: Montefiore Nyack Hospital
Location: Nyack, New York
Over-utilization of emergency department services is common in the medial population, especially when behavioral health issues lead to inpatient medical and behavioral health admissions. This project seeks to remedy this situation by collocating behavioral health, primary care and emergency department services in a common physical location. Included in this concept is not only patients needing pure psychiatric care but would also address at risk behavior associated with drug and alcohol abuse.
