Tri-City Health Center Expands Behavioral Health
and Social Services Department
Fremont, CA – Tri-City Health Center announces the opening of a new clinic – Mowry III-The Behavioral Health and Social Services (BHSS) Clinic. With federal funding from the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA),the new clinic will provide critical primary/complementary medicine, behavioral health, and expanded enabling services to the service area.
TCHC will open its eighth Fremont-based clinic located at 1860 Mowry Ave, Suite 400. Mowry III shares a parking lot with Washington Hospital and is across the street from the health center’s Mowry I and Mowry II clinics.
Behavioral Health providers will continue to provide an integrated model of care with each clinic; however, with a central location, providers will be able to offer group activities, specialty services to include tele-psychiatry and alternative therapies, and a broader range of enabling and social services.
“To be able to coordinate those things in the same place is important,” Interim BHSS Director Dr. Josh McKeever said. “With this centralized location we will be able to better manage patients dually diagnosed with behavioral health and substance use disorder who will receive counseling, case management and medical care under one roof.”
Mowry III will also be a home for the Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) program, substance use disorder services (SUD), and other programs, including pain management therapies, acupuncture and chiropractic care.
At Mowry III, Social Services will play a large role, supporting patients with care delivery, enhancing health literacy and accessing care. Other services include benefits counseling, transportation, translation services, housing and eligibility assistance, with enrollment in CalFresh, HealthPAC, Medi-Cal and other benefits.
These services will continue to eliminate the barriers for patients to receive the best care they need. Increased collaboration in a new location for Behavioral Health and Social Services will bring a more unified approach to care for the health center’s Behavioral Health patients.
