SRMC’s Behavioral Medicine and Wellness Center reopens
SALEM– Salem Regional Medical Center’s Behavioral Medicine and Wellness Center (BMWC) has reopened after being closed since mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. SRMC’s Behavioral Medicine and Wellness Center offers two types of intensive outpatient programs for adults facing a range of mental health conditions, including depression; anxiety; mood changes; and grief, loss and trauma. The outpatient programs are offered 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and include partial hospitalization in which clients attend fives days per week, with each program day lasting five hours; and intensive outpatient in which clients attend up to four days per week, with the program day ranging from three to five hours. Outpatient programs are facilitated by psychiatrist Sharon DiLauro, MD, and a team of specially-trained therapists.
SRMC is taking enhanced precautions to ensure the health and safety of staff and BMWC clients during their visit. The measures include reconfigured waiting/therapy areas and scheduling that promotes social distancing, in addition to frequent sanitization of treatment areas. In addition clients are asked to wear a mask. Individuals who do not have a cloth mask will be given one upon entry that they will then return at the end of their daily session.
