Alvarado Parkway Institute Behavioral Health System (API) recently announced major upcoming expansion plans, including changes to its executive management team. The expansion is aimed at meeting growing mental health and addiction disorder needs in San Diego County.
As part of the company’s efforts to bolster its continuum of care, it will be adding 12 new crisis houses—or residential treatment facilities that offer recovery from mental illness and co-occurring challenges—over the next few years. The company will also be purchasing a new inpatient behavioral health hospital, developing psychiatric urgent care clinics, and expanding its outpatient clinics. In regards to changes in the company’s executive management team, Patrick Ziemer—the company’s CEO—will be transitioning into a corporate role as President and Chief Development Officer; while Megan Montgomery-West—who has been serving as Executive Director of Regulatory Affairs—will become Chief Executive Officer.
Alvarado Parkway Institute Behavioral Health System is focused on meeting the needs of the whole person by providing a continuum of care. The current system includes a 66-bed inpatient hospital, partial hospitalization and outpatient services, three intensive outpatient facilities, Jackson House, a short-term crisis residential treatment program, an In-home health care practice, and a full-service pharmacy with an emphasis on behavioral health and addiction disorder needs.
