JSA Health Telepsychiatry is pleased to announce the start of telepsychiatry consultation services at the Providence Health Center in Waco, Texas. This hospital wide telepsychiatry project provides tele-consultation to patients in the Providence Hospital Emergency Department, Medical/Surgical floors, and Intensive Care Units. Providence Hospital is part of a Waco, Texas area implementation that provides JSA Health telepsychiatrists to 11 hospitals … one psychiatric hospital … and a Mental Health Emergency Center in the Waco region.
Providence Health Center was Waco’s first hospital–founded in 1905 at the request of local businessmen who saw the need for a hospital in Waco. They approached the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent DePaul in Dallas about sponsorship of a hospital, to which the Daughters agreed. Providence Healthcare Network is dedicated to carrying out a Mission of Compassion and Vision of Excellence through providing exceptional health care, with a special commitment to the poor.
The Providence Health Network includes the Providence Health Center, a 301-bed acute care full-service medical center, with cardiac, orthopedic, obstetric, surgical weight loss, rehabilitative and emergency services; primary care and specialty clinics, the DePaul Center, a 64-bed mental health facility; Providence Home Care, one of the largest full-service home care agencies locally; and Providence Park, a 341 bed multi-level of care, long-term facility and retirement community offering sub-acute, nursing care and rehabilitation services.
