Mind Springs Health has opened an 11-bed facility at its Grand Junction campus to add to the mental health care services offered in Western Colorado.
The Transitions at West Springs facility offers services to adults in need of a short-term psychiatric stay. The facility complements the 32-bed West Springs psychiatric hospital, the only one of its kind between Denver and Salt Lake City.
Mind Springs Health recently joined with the Colorado Department of Human Services Colorado Crises Services network to offer new and enhanced services in the 10-county area Mind Springs serves. The Mind Springs mobile crisis response team had added staff and services to improve access to psychiatric consultations.
“It’s important that Coloradans understand that there are quality mental health services available on the Western Slope regardless of who they are, where they reside or what they are dealing with,” said Sharon Raggio, president and chief executive officer of Mind Springs Health.
