Harbor Operations Amid the Coronavirus Epidemic
These are unprecedented times. It is critical that we continue to maintain the continuum of care that we offer our patients. Harbor, Lighthouse Telehealth and The Central Community Health Board will continue to operate amid the coronavirus crisis.
We are fortunate that Harbor has the capability to continue to provide services to the community. We have been building our telehealth platform for the past 8 years – completing over 50,000 virtual services in just the last 12 months. This platform will allow us to expand our tele-psychiatry and tele-therapy service delivery so we can continue to provide critical services to our patients.
Ohio Medicaid, Medicare and the more progressive insurance plans (special thanks to Medical Mutual of Ohio) have temporarily lifted many of the regulatory restrictions for providing telehealth to patients in their homes. These are times when our patients will need us the most. Even if your clients do not have a scheduled appointment, we need you to proactively reach out to them REGULARLY to assess their mental health needs and provide needed services to them.
As of Monday, March 23, the following services at Harbor and CCHB will operate accordingly:
- Therapy and Case Management services will be provided from employee homes via tele phone and/or tele video to clients; a small number of staff will remain at Woodley Road location
- Medication Assisted Treatment– will continue to operate from Woodley and North Prospect
- Ambulatory Detox – will continue to operate from Woodley
- Primary Care – will continue to operate from Woodley and North Prospect
- The Chrysalis – will continue to operate with no visitation
- Devlac – will continue to operate with no visitation
- Crisis Stabilization Center – will continue to operate with no visitation
- Day Treatment – will continue to operate as usual
- Connection Center – currently closed
- ABA Clinic - will continue to operate as usual
- Vocational- will continue to operate as usual
- Long acting Injections – nursing staff to provide in home, with limited onsite at Woodley and North Prospect
Most important for right now, take care of yourself and your family. Follow the federal and state guidelines regarding what to do if you think you may have been exposed or have symptoms of COVID-19.
These uncertain times require a united effort from everyone to ensure Harbor is here for our patients and communities for another hundred years.
While we are in the midst of a national crisis, I am confident that our TRUSTED team is capable of rising to the challenge. Embrace change and take care of each other.
