PARK CITY, UTAH (June 18, 2018) – The Christian Center of Park City (CCPC) announced today the expansion of mental health services to uninsured and underserved members of the Park City community thanks in part to a donation of $10,000 from Intermountain Healthcare.
CCPC is a faith-based, humanitarian community resource center that helps improve the lives of people and communities through meeting immediate and basic needs. It is part of Intermountain Healthcare’s Behavioral Health Network, which is designed to ensure timely access (within seven days) to those requiring behavioral or mental health services.
“We are very excited by this partnership,” said Lisa Nichols, Intermountain Healthcare Community Health executive director. “Everyone, regardless of location or ability to pay, should have access to mental health services at times of personal crisis. CCPC serves as a resource for many services in Wasatch and Summit Counties and will be a wonderful partner in our efforts to help people live the healthiest lives possible.”
Intermountain contributes $530,000 annually to community partners to support timely access to behavioral health services.
“We’re pleased Intermountain is able to make this donation to the Christian Center to help them expand their behavioral health services,” said Marc Harrison, MD, President and CEO of Intermountain. “The need for behavior health is so great in our communities, and the most effective way to address the need is for organizations to collaborate. The Christian Center of Park City is a valued partner of Intermountain, and we feel privileged to work with them.”
“We are so appreciative of Intermountain Healthcare,” said Rob Harter, Executive Director of CCPC. “We are planning to expand mental health services to the uninsured and underinsured in Summit County. We’re working more intentionally with Intermountain Healthcare and hoping to help impact additional lives in our community. “
Dr. Harrison will present a check for the donation to Rob Harter with The Christian Center of Park City on June 20th at 4:00 p.m. Members of the community and media are invited to attend the media event and open house at the Christian Center at 1283 Deer Valley Drive in Park City.
