Our Behavioral Health Journey:
Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers is an organization that continues to find ways to meet the needs of the communities they serve, so knowing how much mental and physical health overlaps we added tele-psychiatry services in our Emergency Department that serves 28,000 patients yearly and med/surg in-patients are able to utilize this service as well. We understand there’s no health without mental health and have made the investment of implementing a Collaborative Care Model – our efforts didn’t stop in the ED! Our goals met in 2019 included expanding our outpatient resources further with the 3rd addition of a LCSW (the first one’s schedule became full in <6months) and a behavioral health care manager collaborates with our current psychiatric consultant and PCPs. Through our new Collaborative Care Model, patients can be seen by their PCP and receive care in a familiar environment. And today, WE NEED YOU for our onsite, hospital-employed opportunity as we seek a BC/BE Adult and C&A Psychiatrist as we continue to expand behavioral services to the communities we serve. This is a great opportunity where you’ll be embedded in a primary care and well-established multi-specialty office to provide management & treatment strategies for the behavioral health of patients - become part of an empowered, patient-centered care team!
FT – Outpatient work would be M-F, 8am-5pm (flexible) Inpatient work is available, but not required. Enjoy your family time, along with a well-run practice. Have the autonomy to create your own schedule & patient visit cadence – you won’t see “conveyor belt” medicine here!
Work at a multi-specialty outpatient center, e.g. Channahon, IL, where all primary care patients would be screened for behavioral health. We have 25 PCPs on-staff (13 FP & 12 IM) with a total Medical Staff of 200 physicians, 20+ advanced practice professionals and highly-trained and reputable LCSWs.
In 01/2019, The University of Washington’s Advancing Integrated Mental Health Solutions team (AIMS) provided physician and clinician collaborative care training. Our Hospital was one of only 80 organizations in the country chosen to receive this training!
