Faces of Arkansas, The Face of Mental Health, The BridgeWay
The BridgeWay Hospital has been serving the community’s mental health needs for almost 40 years.
“The BridgeWay Hospital provides inpatient behavioral health services for children, adolescents, adults and seniors who need hope and recovery requiring intensive services,” CEO Megan Miller says. “Our continuum of care also includes Partial Hospitalization Programming and Intensive Outpatient Programming that help adults take the next steps in healing on an outpatient basis.”
The BridgeWay Hospital offers inpatient and outpatient ECT that relieves the suffering of those with depression or acute mania, those who cannot tolerate or have a lack of response with antidepressant medications, and some suicidal patients who are not able to wait for the full effects of antidepressants.
Empathy is BridgeWay’s highest held value, and through the care and support of every staff member in the hospital, empathy is at the forefront of every action and conversation.
“I remember reading The Diary of Anne Frank as a child,” Miller says. “There was a quote that still stands out to me: ‘How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.’ That’s really what this work is about; helping a single person make a change in their world that improves a community, that will impact the world. I feel privileged to be part of The BridgeWay team, doing our part to improve the world of those suffering from mental health concerns.”
Ready to serve for another 40 or more years, The BridgeWay prides itself on the quality care available to Arkansans looking for assistance.
