Pine Rest | New Sponsor
Posted On July 13, 2012
We are honored to have Pine Rest as a Deep Water Sponsor for Through The Blue. Pine Rest is excited to announce the start of a new Mother-Baby Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). They anticipate opening the program in October of 2012.
Pine Rest currently treats women with postpartum depression (PPD) and perinatal mood disorders (PMD) in the hospital, Adult Partial Program and in our many outpatient clinics. Yet the research indicates that better outcomes are achieved when the patient can bring her newborn with her during treatment so that mother-baby bonding can continue.
The development of this program began over three years ago and included contributions by many of our colleagues, care providers and community organizations. In addition, they have collaborated with existing mother/baby programs throughout the country.
All of the information and research identified a gap in care in this region. This led to the decision by Pine Rest to develop this needed program for women with PMD and their families.
The Pine Rest program will be the third of its kind nationally.
