Client Experience

Burrell is committed to quality care. We believe every individual who receives services has a voice and a story worth hearing. That's why our Quality Department developed the Client Experience team to support and advocate for clients through their journey to recovery, while using their feedback to create a stronger foundation for the care we provide.

We believe access isn't a place, it is a concept.

Access For All

Burrell is proud to be one of the behavioral health centers piloting a new funding model for Medicaid known as CCBHC - Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic. This new funding approach has been instrumental in helping us fulfill our mission and expand our programs and services.

Providing Faster Access

We are on a mission to bring full clinic capabilities to each of the communities we serve. Through the use of telehealth technology we are succeeding at bringing prescribers to rural communities, eliminating the expensive and time intensive barrier of seeing the prescriber miles and miles from home.

Community Engagement

We work in partnership with the communities we serve to address behavioral health needs beyond the walls of our buildings. Whether it is through hosting educational events, integration with area health systems or providing service access within area schools - Burrell believes connection is key to getting our friends and neighbors the help they need.
