HEALTH SERVICES UNIT
The purpose of the Health Services Unit is to establish healthcare standards, values, and policy to enhance treatment outcomes for ColumbiaCare residents.
The intent of the Health Services Unit is to establish requirements and standards for achieving holistic health care for residents in ColumbiaCare Residential Treatment Facilities that address healthcare standards in the following four major levels: policy, administration, practitioners and residents.
The mission of the Health Services Unit is to improve the quality of healthcare in ColumbiaCare Residential Treatment Facilities, to standardize the training and education provided to staff, to assure uniform compliance with all Oregon Administrative Rules applicable to residential facilities and to provide healthcare that respects resident’s ethnicity and cultural beliefs and the role they play in positive treatment outcomes.
The vision of the Health Services Unit is for all residents living in ColumbiaCare facilities to receive the highest standard of health care that encompasses both their mental health and physical health needs and treats the whole person using a health-oriented model that focuses on the resident’s holistic healthcare needs.
PHILOSOPHY STATEMENTS & VALUES
The provision of physical health services in a mental health residential facility is fundamental to ensure high quality and cost-effective holistic recovery for severely and persistently mentally ill adults. The investment in this goal must be made at all levels of the system with an identified strategic plan defining the process of making the needed changes to improve treatment outcomes and overall care.
