Michigan City Hospital Forms Behavioral Health Partnership
Franciscan Health Michigan City has partnered with Signet Health to advance its behavioral health program. The Texas-based company provides management and consulting services in 30 states.
Franciscan Alliance Business Development Administrative Director Scott Mundell said that while Signet will provide management services, patient care will still be provided by Franciscan Health.
“Signet really brings that expertise to managing and operating mental health services, looking at what services are needed in the community and staffing them,” Mundell said.
Signet Health President Joy Figarsky says she recognizes the demand for mental health services.
“Franciscan Health Michigan City’s mission-driven, forward-looking commitment to comprehensive, comprehensive care for the person will make a difference in many lives,” said Figarsky.
The partnership coincides with the move of Franciscan Health Michigan City’s 14-bed behavioral health unit to a new facility on the hospital’s Homer Street campus. Franciscan says the move offers more potential for growth with additional beds and services.
