Coordinated Behavioral Care (CBC) has won the prestigious Heritage Healthcare Organizational Leadership Award at the 3rd Annual Heritage Healthcare Innovation Awards sponsored by Heritage Provider Network and Crain’s New York Business. CBC was among an incredible group of honorees for this award, including Healthfirst, Mount Sinai Hospital System and Essen Health Care.
The event was very well attended and there were some amazing honorees in the different categories. CBC had also been nominated but did not win the Heritage Innovation in Healthcare Delivery Award for their Pathway Home program.
This was an acknowledgment that CBC and the member agencies that make up the Health Home and the IPA are embarking on a transformative path. Being a clinically integrated delivery system that will be able to leverage the full array of community-based services and programs offered within their 50 network providers, whether they be health or behavioral or housing, was recognized as a transformative trend that will close gaps in services and increase access to high quality programs for all New Yorkers.
In accepting the award, CBC President and CEO, Jorge R. Petit, MD, highlighted the importance of not-for-profit, behavioral health organizations in being honored and stressed the importance of having a spotlight shine on the work that these organization’s do day-in and day-out to care for New Yorkers with serious behavioral health conditions was especially gratifying.
Petit stated, “CBC wishes all the awardees our heartfelt congratulations and a special thank you to the Heritage Provider Network and Crain’s New York Business for honoring us with this award. As a not-for-profit, behavioral health organization, it is truly heartening to be considered among such amazing organizations and having a spotlight shine on the work we do day-in and day-out to care for New Yorkers with serious behavioral health conditions.”
CBC and its member agencies are continuing to develop needed ambulatory services, improve on the existing service array within the traditional framework and are working closely with the State and payers to envisions a new paradigm of behavioral healthcare that promotes value and outcomes.
