Behavioral Health Services has made some recent organizational changes
to improve patient care and safety. Please join us as we welcome some
Matt Miller, MHA, started in mid-January as Operations Manager, focusing on outpatient
operations to help streamline processes and maximize services from access
Derek Friedlan, BS, has been named Coordination of Care Manager, focusing on inpatient programming,
crisis services and continuity of care after discharge. This includes
more community outreach, such as implementing mental health screening
tools in the primary care setting.
Kelly Peters is moving to an IT role within BHS, including back-up for the State reporting function.
A new position was created within BHS for a full-time security staff member.
Joe Konkel makes hourly rounds, assists with mental health transports and serves
on the Emergency Preparedness and Safety committees. The number and severity
level of violent incidents has continued to increase, and a dedicated
security officer can sit in on appointments and ensure the safety of providers,
staff and other patients.
Tisha McIntosh says she has already seen positive improvements from the changes, which
she believes will make it possible to serve more patients with greater
safety and efficiency.
