Letter From the CEO

Sherrie James, RN, MS CEO

Welcome to our website, and thank you for taking the time to visit us and see what we have to offer. We, here at The BridgeWay, like all other healthcare facilities, have been impacted by the challenges of the latest surge of COVID and the current staffing shortages; however, patient and staff safety remains our top priority.

Please know that we have solid COVID screening processes in place for patients, visitors, and staff and require and provide, if needed, masks for all who enter. We also require all our team to wear masks and practice COVID precautions, and have proactive policies and procedures in effect to ensure we are doing all we can to prevent possible transmission.

We are continually striving to recruit and retain our staff related to staffing shortages and have taken some pretty creative steps to improve both recruitment and retention. One thing that is different at The BridgeWay is our emphasis on the importance of empathy skills. We value empathy skills because we value technical skills. After all, they are critical when communicating and caring effectively for our patients.

Our mission at The BridgeWay is about serving those in need of behavioral healthcare and substance use disorder treatment in our community and beyond if needed. We have proudly supported our mission since 1983. We continue to offer services for all populations. Additionally, we provide Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Programming (PHP) for adults, which can be done in person or virtually, as well as Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) on an inpatient and outpatient basis.

Again, I want to thank you for viewing our website and asking that you please call us at 1-800-245-0011 if you or a loved one needs help or are interested in employment opportunities.

Sincerely,
Sherrie James
CEO
