Our Professional Referral Process

Located in Chicago, Illinois, Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital is proud to partner with professionals throughout Chicagoland. Our ability to collaborate with esteemed behavioral healthcare professionals allows us to increase access to care for those in need. 

Who We Partner With

There are many professionals throughout our community who are dedicated to providing exceptional clinical care for patients in need. Some of our most common referral sources include individual outpatient providers such as therapists, social workers, psychiatrists, and general practitioners. We also partner with community-based counseling agencies and nonprofit mental health organizations.  

Additionally, we frequently collaborate with the Chicago Police Department, Chicago neighborhood organizations, residential treatment facilities, and other inpatient hospitals. 

The Screening, Assessment and Support Services (SASS), which is a statewide system that provides services for children and adolescents who are struggling with mental health crises, is another crucial partnership that assists the team at Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital for Children & Teens in helping young people get the treatment they need. 

Our Referral Process

At Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital, we strive to make the referral process one that is seamless and straightforward, as we recognize the importance of getting patients into the appropriate level of care as quickly as possible. We pride ourselves on offering timely and transparent communication as strong working relationships are built. 

To develop successful partnerships, our business development team actively attends special community events and meetings and visits potential referral agencies and police districts. We also hold internal events that offer CEU opportunities for internal and external clinical professionals. 

We have found that “Lunch and Learn” events can be immensely beneficial for our team and outside professionals within the community, and we are pleased to be able to offer these opportunities. These events allow experts in the field of mental health to share knowledge with others who work in the healthcare industry.  

Partnering with Us

When choosing to work with the team at Montrose Behavioral Health Hospital, not only will your patient receive the utmost in clinically excellent care, but we will also work closely with you to ensure that they receive a steady continuum of treatment once they leave our facility and return to your care. 

We encourage all patients to complete the appropriate consent forms so that we can remain in ongoing communication with you throughout their time in treatment. We also ask that referral sources participate in therapeutic support meeting sessions and the discharge planning process. 

If you are interested in partnering with us, we encourage you to contact us at any time that is convenient for you. We are available 24/7.
