Job Description

About 6 North

This Behavioral Health Tech position is for Future Unit 6 North, scheduled to open in January 2019. Unit will be a 20 bed Adult Behavioral Health Unit located on St Joseph Campus.

We are opening 6N to help move as many BH patients to Copestone as is possible, getting patients out of the ED/PEA's more quickly and into deeper levels of treatment earlier, and hopefully lessening the burden on B3 South. A reminder that we expect that our 5S patients will be the patient population we serve on 6North and that we will be transitioning 5S to a dual diagnosis type of unit.
