COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (PRWEB) March 29, 2020
With the ongoing rise of COVID-19 diagnoses in Colorado, Peak View Behavioral Health in Colorado Springs announces the implementation of a dedicated unit for presumptive positive COVID patients in need of mental health treatment. This unit is accepting patients effective Thursday, March 26, 2020.
This unit is a part of Peak View’s goal to ensure that our Colorado residents' behavioral health needs are met during this unprecedented pandemic. We have implemented all necessary precautions developed by the Center for Disease Control to ensure the health and safety of both our staff and patients. This unit will be staffed with specialized dedicated team members. The unit will accept adults and medically-stable older adults and will include medication management, therapy, vitals monitoring, additional medical oversight, and virtual family meetings.
"This is a great opportunity for Peak View to continue providing behavioral health care to a population that is being excluded by many mental health facilities at this time," says Ty Meredith, CEO. "We have a responsibility to care for every Colorado resident in need of help, and that doesn't stop in the face of this outbreak."
In addition to our standard intensive treatment, patients will receive infection control education and special instructions for self-quarantine upon discharge.
Peak View is also offering telehealth support services for our outpatient programs during this time. To learn more or to begin the admission process, please call 719-444-8484 to speak to one of our specialists.
