Creative Health Services … the premier Community Behavioral Health Center in the Tri-County area… with “No Wrong Door”
“I feel like I am beginning to recover just by walking in here,”
consumer advocate complimented upon entering our revolutionary new facility.
In September 2008, Creative Health Services, Inc. completed development of it's new headquarters and main service location at 11 Robinson Street, Pottstown. This location revolutionizes the manner and setting in which services are offered to the community. The 43,000 square foot facility was completely gutted and redesigned, incorporating green building concepts alongside service innovations every step of the way. Creating an innovative and attractive space for collaborative health service that stands apart from typical community service providers was the guiding design concept. Building footprint, use of space, lighting design, noise control, material choices and overall interior design were all key factors in development.
National Council for Behavioral Health (NCBH) members commended us for accomplishing this seemingly unattainable goal with these words of affirmation, “This thoughtful and strategic attention to detail has generated the creation of one of the most attractive, unique, and innovative spaces for treatment and recovery in the country.” Perhaps the highest compliment was paid when a consumer advocate stated, “I feel like I am beginning to recover just by walking in here,” Just as important to us, the reaction from our partners and those we serve has been overwhelmingly positive.
Early in the design process, we began referring to our building as a Health Services Center, rather than by its separate occupants. Collaboration and proximity create a "no wrong door" approach to care. Committed to this philosophy, we partner with local primary care physicians and hospitals. Our complex is home to Genoa: a QoL Healthcare Pharmacy. Nationally, Genoa operates full service pharmacies within community mental health centers similar to our 11 Robinson campus. Genoa makes it convenient for anyone visiting Creative Health to fill prescriptions for behavioral health and primary care medications.
The co-location of primary care services along with behavioral health treatment offers significant advantages to the community. Creative Health Services, Inc. at 11 Robinson Street in Pottstown is situated to develop strong collaborative partnerships and integrated care opportunities. Tremendous components are now in place to provide cutting edge and transformative healthcare to a high need population, who are traditionally served in an extremely fragmented manner. We offer outstanding choices to individuals suffering with behavioral health difficulties who present in primary care (the majority of the population) as we enhance healthcare for those in treatment for mental health and/or drug and alcohol services.
THRIVE…with Connection and Support.
