Ascend Healthcare is pleased to announce further expansion of its behavioral health service line in collaboration with Innovation Care Partners (ICP). Ascend will be an in-network psychiatric and counseling service provider accepting direct referrals from the ICP network of over two thousand medical professionals. The program launch is scheduled for October 2021 and will create increased access to behavioral healthcare for over 175,000 patients across their network.
Ascend Healthcare launched in April, 2020 at the start of the pandemic with it’s flagship partner NOAH (Neighborhood Outreach Access to Health) and has provided over 50,000 patient engagements by the end of their first year. Additional collaborations with EvolvedMD and Adelante Healthcare have extended the Ascend service line to over 30 clinics across Arizona creating a virtual access to behavioral healthcare network for over 200,000 patients across the state.
Ascend Healthcare is founded on the core philosophy of creating access to care for as many patients suffering with behavioral health and substance use disorders as possible. We believe early intervention is the key to successful outcomes by strategically aligning partnerships to create integrated behavioral health and medical solutions for patients that are easily accessible, timely in their service delivery and are of the utmost quality.
