“Peak Behavioral has a great reputation for providing quality services and I take the intake department’s first contact with patients and referral sources very seriously,” says Jeanette Wohlfert, Intake Director. The intake department is no stranger to quickly processing referrals from law enforcement and hospital emergency departments, they are accustomed as well to patients arriving at Peak behavioral for an immediate assessment. Wohlfert continues, “Peak Behavioral’s intake department consists of many very talented and compassionate staff, who along with the various other departments at Peak Behavioral have a high regard for compassionate care and clinical integrity.”
“Jeanette brings a new level of appreciating and enhancing the overall patient experience of an individual seeking help for mental health and substance use issues. It’s a big deal for a patient to show up at a hospital’s emergency room or at our hospital asking for help” says Sandy Emanuel, interim CEO of Peak Behavioral Health. Emanuel continues, “My expectations of Jeanette and her department are very simple; I want Peak Behavioral to continue to be a resource for anyone experiencing a mental health crisis, by helping them quickly access the most appropriate level of care to meet their needs.
