Clark Center Strategic Plan Updates
The Clark Center management team meets twice annually for a strategic planning day of retreat. At this day long meeting, imminent changes in the industry are presented for consideration and many plans and ideas are discussed regarding how we will effectively serve our clients and efficiently run our agency. Out of the many goals and ideas considered, a few are chosen to be a part of our annual Strategic Plan. The objectives chosen for this plan are considered to be those of utmost importance for the agency to address. A few exerts from this year’s strategic plan are:
- The Clark Center will examine and implement procedural and practice changes with the aim of minimizing the referral list for therapy. Update: This goal is continued from last year. Our efforts to date have reduced the referral list by half. Pending further data review we will consider if there is anything else we can do to shift the curve..
- Clark Center will continue to search for suitably sized office space in every town in our catchment area in which there is a Walmart. Update: Clark secured funding for a building project in Mt. Vernon. Property has already been purchased. Plans for renovation are being developed.
The Clark Center maintains our accreditation through the Coalition for Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. During a survey the CARF team members examine Clark Center programs, policies and procedures against numerous international standards of practice excellence. Interviews with clients, staff members and other stakeholders are conducted. The survey tells us what we are doing well and ways we might improve. Our most recent survey was in the August of 2022 and we again received a 3 year accreditation which is the highest level that a behavioral health center can receive. Our current accreditation is good through summer of 2025.
