ViewPoint Center, an assessment center and mental health hospital for teens ages 12-17, is looking back on exciting opportunities and growth experienced throughout 2017.
“In 2017, we made several additions and changes to our program which further enhances the experience of our patients and their families,” says Jennifer Wilde, LCSW, Executive Clinical Director at ViewPoint Center. “We’ve made several improvements to our campus including remodeling our medical office, cafeteria and patio room. Enhancing the aesthetics of our facilities has had big payoffs in overall mood and attitude for patients.”
In addition to cosmetic improvements to campus, ViewPoint Center added new staff members including Primary Therapist Chad Stark, Psychology department team member Merissa Cook, Residential staff member Nichole Wardell, and certified classroom instructor Jennifer Capellen.
“In order to deliver the highest quality of care possible to our patients, we have added a fully certified DBT program, a patient health program led by our Nursing Supervisor Jess Nielsen, and an EMAR system which streamlines medication distribution,” comments Wilde.
Over the past year, ViewPoint Center has helped over 100 patients and their families. “Without the support of caring professionals and our hard working team we never would have had the opportunity to help so many families work towards a happier, healthier future,” says Wilde.
