BEHAVIORAL HEALTH / FEATURE
SESSION 1
Learn from experience
Looking to open a behavioral health center? Here are four tips from
organizations with experience.
THE EXPERTS
Moderator: Lawrence Wissow, M.D., Director, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine, Seattle Children's
David Axelson, M.D., Medical Director, Big Lots Behavioral Health Services, Nationwide Children's Hospital
Mark Ranatza, R.N., Behavioral Health Service Line Administrator, Children's Hospital New Orleans
DRIVING CHANGE
Rethink transport
It's a Chevy Tahoe-not an ambulance-
that transports pediatric patients to the
Big Lots Behavioral Health Pavilion from
the main Nationwide Children's campus
less than a mile away, David Axelson says.
The benefits:
* Less stigma, more comfort.
* No access to the driver, no way out of
the car because of door locks.
* A faster ride. Axelson says a safe car
ride to the pavilion from the main campus
is about 15 minutes versus 45 minutes
after waiting for an ambulance.
RE-IMAGINING DESIGN
Engage the community
Mark Ranatza: " When you walk off our
campus, you're walking into a residential
zone with houses surrounding us. So it was
imperative for us (when building the center)
to be engaged, to have town halls and work
with the community in terms of what this
looks like. We took that community feedback
and included it into our design. "
BEING THERE
Prioritize your staff
David Axelson: " Employee retention during
the pandemic is tough because you don't do
as much socialization as you'd like to do. But
communicate the best you can. Having nursing
leadership out on the unit is important.
Interacting with staff is important. Just being
out there interacting is important. "
PLANNING AHEAD
Be ready to adapt.
Mark Ranatza: " No matter what you're
planning for your new building, be prepared
for it to change on Day 1. "
" As a child
psychiatrist,
I feel like
we've been the
misunderstood
child of pediatric
medicine for
a long time,
trying to find
ways to frame
and finance
what we do as
being central to
children's care.
And in some
ways, our time
has come. "
