Franciscan Health Dyer outsources the management of its behavioral health services to Signet Health.
The partnership will also provide counseling services to the growing behavioral health services of Franciscan, which recently expanded its programs for adolescents, the health system said.
Signet and Franciscan have a similar partnership in Michigan City within the behavioral health unit of that community’s health system.
“(Signet brings) a wealth of expertise and an experienced team focused on behavioral health and rehabilitation,” said Scott Mundell, executive director of business development at Franciscan Alliance.
Signet’s role focuses on advisory and management services, but patient care will still be provided by Franciscan Health.
Signet Health is based in North Richland Hills, Texas, and operates in 30 states.
Franciscan said Signet is recognized as an industry leader in working with hospital leaders to create behavioral health programs rooted in best practices and innovative therapies through their expertise and commitment to advocating for people. vulnerable.
“Signet really brings that expertise in managing and operating mental health services, assessing what services are needed in the community and guiding us on how best to deliver them,” Mundell said.
In December 2021, Franciscan Health Dyer dedicated an expansion of its adolescent behavioral health programs to meet growing demand. Dyer’s facilities now include 20 adolescent inpatient beds, 26 adult beds and four chemical dependency beds.
The St. Francis Center is a residential treatment center for adolescents on the campus of Franciscan Health Dyer, offering intensive therapy in a secure environment. The center accommodates up to 42 young people aged 12 to 18.
