Integrated Outpatient Services

Integrated Outpatient Services

On January 1, 2015; OASAS, OMH, and DOH partnered in the development, implementation and oversight of the “Integrated Licensure Project”. This collaboration resulted in the development of clinical and physical plant standards, staffing requirements, and a single application and review process.

This integration allows for our organization to deliver cross-agency clinical services at a single site, under a single license. This has provided more flexibility for Credo Community Center to not only provide the quality services that our community relies on, but to also grow and adapt more easily to changes in our field.
