Ascendient understands that it is not appropriate to consider behavioral health as a service in isolation, its planning considerations and implications are far too broad and impact numerous care delivery areas. Whether you are a full-service hospital that provides behavioral health services, a freestanding substance abuse facility, an Institute for Mental Disease (IMD), or a public health department, Ascendient can work with you to most effectively plan for the needs of your organization and community.
We will work with you to assess behavioral health needs and the changing demand for services. We can also evaluate the resources necessary to respond to changing demand, while also accounting for those activities that have the greatest potential to proactively impact key demand drivers.
From an organizational perspective, we also help behavioral health organizations evaluate potential merger, acquisition, and consolidation opportunities as they seek to understand the most appropriate structure necessary to ensure the effective and efficient delivery of their services.
