Salt Lake City, UT -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/12/2020 --Intermountain Healthcare has opened a new psychiatry and counseling clinic on its Park City Hospital campus thanks to the vision and donations of local community members and leaders. The clinic will help increase access for behavioral health services in Summit and Wasatch Counties and offers same-day and next-day crisis appointments.
The new Park City Psychiatry and Counseling Clinic was built thanks in part to generous philanthropic gifts totaling $1.9 million to Intermountain Foundation at Park City Hospital from The J. Willard & Alice S. Marriott Foundation, The Buzz & Polly Strasser Family Foundation, and Rachel McAree.
"We are profoundly grateful to those who have rallied around this critical need for mental health services in our community. The support received is a great start, but the need is greater still. We will be seeking an additional $3 million in philanthropic support in order to provide timely access to the additional mental health services needed in our community," said Lori Weston, CEO/administrator at Intermountain Park City Hospital.
"The Park City Psychiatry and Counseling Clinic is one more example of how Intermountain Healthcare is committed to integrating mental health services into our medical clinics and making behavioral health services more accessible and closer to home for the communities we serve," said Mikelle Moore, Intermountain's senior vice president and chief community health officer.
The clinic offers a full range of outpatient psychiatric services provided for children, adolescents and adults by a psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse practitioner and psychologist.
The behavioral health team offers counseling and treatment for psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, addiction, attention deficit, autism, post-traumatic stress, eating disorders, LGBTQ needs, as well as some specialized services including outpatient substance abuse detox, treatment-resistant depression, electroconvulsive therapy, mindfulness and existential therapy and the importance of diet and exercise in maintaining mental well-being. Providers include Joshua Mitchell, MD, Laura Cipro, PMHNP and Colton Miller, PhD.
