New Collaborations Established with Area Hospitals

Dirigo Counseling Clinic is proud to announce that a Memo of Understanding has been executed between our practice and St. Joseph’s Hospital, Mt. Desert Hospital, and Blue Hill Memorial Hospital. This establishes a relationship between our “Behavioral Health Home” and the hospitals’ “Medical Health Home” The Health Home model is an initiative rolled out by Medicaid which assures that patients have health care that is integrated, well-tracked, and comprehensive. This model strives to realize better health outcomes at less costs than has been seen in the traditional “silo” model of the delivery of health care services. Besides the above, Dirigo Counseling Clinic already has the same arrangements with the following practices:

Eastern Maine Medical Center
Maine Coat Regional Health Facilities
Penobscot Community Health Center
