HopeWay Opens Psychiatry Outpatient Practice
SouthPark area office of HopeWay Psychiatry & Associates will increase access to psychiatrists
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (February 17, 2020) – HopeWay, an accredited nonprofit mental health residential and day treatment center for adults, has opened a community-based private practice in the SouthPark area to provide a broad range of high-quality psychiatric outpatient care to children, adolescents and adults in the Charlotte region.
HopeWay Psychiatry & Associates will help increase access to psychiatric services in the Charlotte area, serving both the community at large and HopeWay clients seeking to continue their care in an outpatient setting who do not already have an established care team.
“While we have wonderful providers in Charlotte, it is no secret that our community does not have enough psychiatric support to meet growing and varied needs. At HopeWay, we have seen this reality play out with many of our clients upon discharge when they do not already have an established psychiatrist. We are thrilled to be in a position to help meet this need by expanding our mission through HopeWay Psychiatry & Associates,” said Dr. Alyson R. Kuroski-Mazzei, a psychiatrist who is HopeWay’s chief executive officer and chief medical officer.
“HopeWay is committed to provide a holistic program of mental health services essential for long-term recovery,” added Dr. Kevin Marra, a psychiatrist who is HopeWay’s director of medical services. “Having an outpatient option improves the continuity of care for the clients we serve.”
The clinic will serve people with psychiatric diagnoses, with psychiatrists specializing in mood disorders, psychotic disorders, sleep disorders, women’s peripartum mood disorders, child/adolescent neurodevelopmental disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma and substance use disorders.
HopeWay recently hired an additional psychiatrist to join the team and is recruiting two more. At capacity, there will be eight psychiatrists between the two campuses.
HopeWay Psychiatry & Associates will be a “payment at time of service” practice, but clients will receive a statement of services so they can file for their own insurance reimbursement. HopeWay’s financial assistance program supports a sliding scale structure for qualifying clients.
HopeWay Psychiatry & Associates is located at 5925 Carnegie Blvd., Suite 525, Charlotte, NC 28209. The phone number is 980-859-0990 or online at hopeway.org/psychiatryassoc
Like HopeWay, HopeWay Psychiatry & Associates will operate under the umbrella of the nonprofit HopeWay Foundation.
HopeWay is an accredited nonprofit residential and day mental health treatment center for adults located at 1717 Sharon Road West in southwest Charlotte and serving clients from our region and from across the nation. HopeWay’s continuum of care meets the needs of adults living with mental illness and their families with residential care and day treatment programs as well as after-care planning, with a goal of helping clients live successfully and independently in the community. HopeWay’s goal is to also raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues through a community education program. To learn more, visit www.hopeway.org
