SalusCare’s Center for Growth Grand Opening Event May 31st

SalusCare’s Center for Growth, a dedicated and comprehensive practice for the behavioral healthcare needs of children and families, will hold a grand opening event on May 31st from 10 – 11 am at 2789 Ortiz Ave. in Fort Myers.

The all-inclusive center will include two full-time child psychiatrists. They will offer outpatient therapy for children and families and children’s case management. The Community Action Team (CAT), and Therapeutic Behavioral On-Site Services (TBOS) will also be available.  A sliding-fee scale is offered, and most insurance plans are accepted.

“SalusCare heard from our Southwest Florida community that children’s behavioral healthcare services needed to be expanded and consolidated into one family-friendly, supportive and comfortable environment,” said Stacey Cook-Hawk, President & CEO of SalusCare.  “Parents bringing children to SalusCare for services asked for a dedicated building housing all children’s behavioral healthcare services.  SalusCare not only heard the community, but we have listened and acted upon their request by opening the Center for Growth.”

The new Center for Growth is in a re-purposed former adult residential facility. It is located in Building G on the Ortiz Campus. “SalusCare was fortunate to possess some restricted funding available for children’s services, so this became the seed money we needed to initiate this project,” said Todd Cordisco, Vice President of Public Relations & Development.  “There are still items on our wish list and opportunities for donors to support this new comprehensive center for children and families.”

The community is invited and encouraged to attend the event on May 31.  Please RSVP your attendance to tcordisco@saluscareflorida.org.
