Huntingdon Health Services, formerly Huntingdon HealthCare, was founded to provide psychiatric care to those in need of diagnosis and treatment of a mental health condition.
Huntingdon Health Services’ program has been carefully developed to assist adults, with mental health issues, to achieve their highest level of independence and functioning.
Headquartered in Fort Myers, FL, our in-house employees support a consulting staff of over 20 psychiatric medical professionals who provide services to more than 140 skilled nursing facilities throughout the state of Florida.
Our model of care provides a psychologist (employed by an affiliated company) and a psychiatrist, assigned to each facility.
Upon receipt of an attending physician’s order, the psychologists perform an initial evaluation and provide psychotherapy and/or behavioral management, when clinically appropriate. Our psychiatrists also perform an initial evaluation and psychotropic medication management, when clinically indicated. This collaboration provides continuity of care for our patients.
Our psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners serve as consultants to the facility’s attending physicians and nursing staff, lending their medical expertise to improve the quality of care for their patients.
In April of 2017, Huntingdon HealthCare became Huntingdon Health Services when MCR Health acquired the company. The acquisition was the result of a successful multi-year partnership between MCR Health and Huntingdon HealthCare.
