Behavioral Health Community Partners
Patients with the most significant behavioral health needs receive specialized support from Duffy Health Center case managers as they navigate the health care system. Support offered by case managers includes care coordination and care management; support of transitions of care; and connection to social services and community resources so that patients can live independently.
With funding from our federal Health Care for the Homeless grant, Duffy partners with Cape Cod Healthcare to provide a team of clinical and support staff who meet with persons hospitalized for inpatient mental health care before they leave the hospital. Our data show that 90% of patients seen by the Duffy team at Cape Cod Hospital connect to Duffy services post-discharge.
Humbled & Inspired
“I’ve been working at Duffy for more than 20 years and what has remained unchanged is the compassionate hands-on care that we provide to our patients every day.”
