Integrated Healthcare: Promising Practices Part 2
From Jeff Layne
LMFT, CEO, Hill Country Health & Wellness Center
The main clinic of Hill Country Heath & Wellness Center is located in Round Mountain, California, which CEO Lynn Dorroh describes as “such a small town that many people who pass through don’t even know there’s a town there.” The first clinic was built from “two halves of a modular building that didn’t fit together” and started with what she calls “natural integration: one doctor; one therapist (Ms. Dorroh); three tiny exam rooms; and lots of communication.” Today, over 100 employees serve approximately 5,000 patients annually, with a total of 23,000 patient visits. About 1,500 of the patients have a serious mental illness. Ms. Dorroh tells the story of how Hill Country grew and the principles that have guided its multi-faceted approach to health and wellness.
