PRESS RELEASE
Rockdale County will receive Integrated Care from
Oakhurst Medical Centers, Inc. at View Point Health

October 12, 2012

ROCKDALE – View Point Health and Oakhurst Medical Centers announce their integrated approach to Behavioral Health and Primary Care Services. On November 5, 2012, primary care services will be offered by Oakhurst Medical Centers at the Rockdale Mental Health Center, 977-A Taylor Street, Conyers, GA 30012.

This is a collaborative effort to provide patient-centered holistic health care to Rockdale County citizens. In the past citizens would make two appointments at different locations for their physical health and behavioral health needs. Now citizens can schedule primary care and behavioral health care appointments for the same day at one location. One of the benefits of co-location is the ability for the physicians and psychiatrists to coordinate care, and ensure that complementary treatments are provided.

View Point Health, formerly called GRN Community Service Board, is the community’s public provider of psychiatric treatment, mental health and substance abuse counseling services for citizens most in need. Oakhurst Medical Centers is a federally qualified health center (FQHC) that will provide pediatrics, family medicine and women’s care. 

The Oakhurst Medical Centers CEO, Jeff Taylor said, “The goal of this long-awaited collaboration is to provide access to quality behavioral and primary care for residents of Rockdale County.”  “This is a great opportunity for the residents of Rockdale County,” said David Crews, View Point Health CEO.  “I’m pleased that residents will now have access to integrated care so they can live healthier lives.” Residents can call 678-209-2655 to get more information about primary care or to schedule behavioral health and primary care appointments. Oakhurst Medical Centers provides services on a sliding scale for uninsured citizens, and accepts Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance, cash, debit cards, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover Card.
