Looking Toward the Future
After four years of continuous effort to improve patient care, quality and safety, while also improving the hospital’s financial performance and stability; the Board of Directors has turned its attention to the future. The hospital building and hospital equipment have been upgraded, and new clinics have been added; but these improvements are just the beginning.
The HMC Board of Directors has adopted a plan to make additional improvements to the HMC System. Among the most significant of these are:
- A 6,000 Sq. Ft. Expansion of Eldorado Primary Care – Continued growth has necessitated additional space to meet clinic needs. Plans are underway to double the size of the clinic which, in addition to increasing the number of primary care providers, will also add a private behavioral health area, a visiting physician specialty clinic, an outpatient rehabilitation area and additional diagnostic services.
- Relocation and Expansion of Alexander Family Practice – The Harrisburg office, which will double in size, will move to South Commercial Street and feature expanded services such as visiting specialty physicians and outpatient rehabilitation services. The Marion office will also expand and offer new services.
Extensive Behavioral Health Services:
- Mulberry Center – Psychiatric Services Unit – a 26-bed in-patient behavioral health service for both adults and geriatric adults.
- Bradford House – an outpatient behavioral health program, designed to reduce the length of in-patient psychiatric hospitalization or divert individuals from in-patient hospitalization completely.
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) – designed to provide less intensive services than in-patient care or partial hospitalizatio programs.
Outreach – In addition to our five out-patient clinics, Harrisburg Medical Center also offers resources such as:
- Home Health Care – providing in-home care to patients in nine counties within a 50-mile radius of Harrisburg.
- Outreach Programs – Including wellness workshops, arthritis exercise program, and support groups for patients, parents and senior citizens; plus wellness activities for schools, athletic events and other community organizations
