All of us at MultiCare are truly excited about our newly announced affiliation with Greater Lakes Mental Healthcare and the positive impact our affiliation promises to have on behavioral health services in the region. Expanding access to care, particularly behavioral health care, is a critical need in our community, and our partnership will allow us to deliver that care, together.
Like Greater Lakes, MultiCare embraces the philosophy that primary care, social services and behavioral health care should be delivered in an integrated approach that focuses on the whole person. Together, our organizations can help solve the severe shortage of behavioral health services in our region.
As a Greater Lakes employee, you might have questions about how the two organizations coming together will impact you. We’re committed to keeping you informed as we work through this transition, and we will work with your leaders to keep you updated as new information becomes available. In the meantime, please read through the FAQ that's been prepared to address your questions.
We hope that you’ll take a few moments to watch the video above, featuring David Johnson, CEO of Navos, and Tim Holmes, President of MultiCare Behavioral Health, speaking about Navos’ affiliation with MultiCare in 2017, and the relationship that has grown between the organizations since that time. It also features Greater Lakes’ own Terri Card, who talks a bit more about why Greater Lakes and MultiCare promise to be a great fit.
We are confident that joining forces will allow both our organizations to enhance what we do well, and identify new areas for innovation. And, as this affiliation moves forward, we look forward to learning from all of you.
Partnering for healing and a healthy future.
Our values serve as our guiding principles and impact every aspect of our organization, including how we provide patient care and what we expect from each other. Every decision at MultiCare will be made through the prism of our values.
