Riverbend is Open and Here to Support You! Posted on March 22, 2020March 23, 2020 As we all know, things with COVID-19 are rapidly evolving. Riverbend Community Mental Health is working alongside Concord Hospital to synchronize their response and preparedness measures to ensure that the physical and behavioral healthcare needs of our community are met in the safest environment possible. “Not to mince words: this virus poses a real threat to our community,” stated Dr. Jeffery Fetter, Riverbend’s Chief Medical Officer. “The worry is that the peak of the epidemic will overwhelm our supply of ICU beds. The goal is to ‘Flatten the Curve’ and make sure the peak is low enough for Concord Hospital to manage.” First and foremost, Riverbend is OPEN! As a provider of critical crisis intervention services, clinicians are available 24/7 by calling 1-844-743-5748. “We will continue to provide clinical services to current clients and welcome those who are seeking services,” said Chris Mumford, Riverbend’s Chief Operating Officer. “These are difficult and confusing times. Many are feeling overwhelmed. We are here to support you. Riverbend is only a phone call away.” Each day is going to continue to bring unforeseen challenges. Know that the entire healthcare system is working to respond and keep all of us safe.
