Philosophy of Care
Children’s Bill of Rights:
Global Medical and Behavioral Health supports the concept that each patient is an individual and is respected as a person. Each patient has the right to comprehensive, compassionate, family-centered care that will be provided by an interdisciplinary team and directed by a physician and/or therapist. We utilize a treatment approach that provides sensitive and flexible care that respects the developmental, psychological, emotional, and social needs of children, adolescents and their families.
As part of our commitment to the needs of our young patients, the Global Medical and Behavioral Children’s Bill of Rights is prominently displayed – and followed – throughout our programs and services.
