Gavia LifeCare Center, LLC
Gavia LifeCare Center is an OMH Licensed Outpatient Mental Health treatment center. As we are licensed by OMH, we are able to accept all insurance types, including Medicaid and Medicare.
Responsiveness to Clients and Referral Sources
Due to our independence from the large medical facilities, we offer a more flexible and immediate response to the needs of clients. Treatment is tailored specifically to those currently in our service instead of having traditional topics for groups. For example, if we find there is a cohort of women who all belong to the “sandwich generation”, caring for aging parents and young children, a therapy group could be formed offering support and skill building specific to those needs.
One of the main gaps in service in the community is the availability of Psychiatric Specialists to manage medications. We have Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners on staff as well as an overseeing Psychiatrist to solve this issue. The consistent presence of a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner affords Gavia LifeCare Center, LLC the opportunity to offer evaluations to all clients to examine the role of medication in management of their symptoms.
Our clinician development and supervisory model is a significant advantage over other treatment providers. Gavia LifeCare Center, LLC offers professional development for all clinicians and encourage professional growth in areas of interest. As clinicians grow professionally, services for our clients improve.
After Hours Support
Gavia LifeCare Center, LLC has an on-call system for after hour emergencies covered by the clinicians in the agency. This is a critical service for clients as it guarantees they will speak with a person who can access their record electronically and become familiar with the patient’s history. When a client is in crisis, speaking with a therapist who knows them and can schedule a crisis visit the very next day is both reassuring, and may prevent a hospital visit.
If the client is in crisis and needs acute services, the on-call clinician will refer to our community based partners. The referral may be critical and require a 911 call or coordination with an open access center in the community. We will be able to send clinical information from our EMR to that respective provider seamlessly.
