OKC Health Care Briefs April 2, 2003


Wedel, Steve, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Hillcrest HealthCare System of Tulsa is closing its outpatient clinics in Tahlequah and Bartlesville, which will leave more than 400 clients - many of them children - to find new providers. The clinics will close by March 31 as part of a plan by Hillcrest to concentrate on its inpatient programs, officials said.

The Tulsa Regional Medical Center's Children's Medical Centers sent letters to clients notifying them of the closures, Hillcrest spokeswoman Sally Huggins said in a report from The Associated Press.

Mike Brose, executive director of the Mental Health Association in Tulsa, said his agency's concern is for clients' follow-up care. "This can be very problematic in a rural area because there may not be another provider who can pick up the need. There is a high risk in this situation that these children and their families may end up on their own, which is unacceptable."

Cynthia Koller, behavioral health services director for the Hillcrest system, said Hillcrest officials "are confident that patients will be able to access any of the community clinics and experience a smooth transition with uninterrupted services."

The Tahlequah clinic will refer about 300 patients to Blue Sky Behavioral Health, Counseling Associates, Green Country Behavioral Health Services, Tenkiller Behavioral Services Inc., Bill Willis Community Mental Health Center and People Inc. The Bartlesville clinic will refer about 130 patients to Grand Lake Mental Health Center, Youth and Family Services, BlueStem Mental Health, Samaritan Counseling & Growth Center and Family Crisis Counseling Center.
