CNS opened a new health clinic for families in the Waterford / Pontiac area in partnership with the Oakland Integrated Healthcare Network (OIHN) in March, 2013. CNS provides behavioral health services while OIHN provides primary care. The collaborative health center is located next to the site presently occupied by CNS’s behavioral health clinic, 279 Summit Drive, in Waterford.
“Integrated” means that a care team for each patient includes both medical and behavioral health professionals as needed, delivered in one setting. Patient care is coordinated with dentistry and specialty providers. OIHN provides the full range of primary and preventive medical care associated with Family Medicine, for all ages and for all chronic conditions such as hypertension, asthma and diabetes.
The health center encompasses 15,000 square feet and is equipped with behavioral health contact rooms, medical exam rooms, a lab and a pharmacy. The clinic serves children, adults and families including those receiving Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurances as well as uninsured persons. It is not a free clinic, but fees are based on ability to pay.
Convenience of cross-referral between behavioral health and primary care services is one notable benefit to consumers. A Behavioral Health Consultant is available to advise on chronic medical conditions and prevention interventions (such as smoking cessation). Health Navigators facilitate benefits enrollment, accessing community resources and assisting under- or uninsured patients with prescription drug assistance and additional medical services.
The clinic is open Monday thru Friday, 9:00AM – 4:00PM.
