The Behavioral Health Center at Westchester Medical Center offers inpatient treatment for both children and adolescents. The educational provider that the Behavioral Health Center initially contracted could not provide regular funding for teachers’ salaries. As a result, the patient/ students experienced inconsistent instruction.
In 2006, the Center challenged Education, Inc. to tackle the problems plaguing its educational program. The EI team accepted that challenge, striving to improve the relationship with the school districts and thereby ensuring adequate funding for the program.
