Winner, Best Mental Health Facility
The BridgeWay opened its doors in 1983, co-founded by a group of community-based physicians and Universal Health Services. Through local leadership and the support of corporate resources, The BridgeWay has been serving the mental health needs of the community ever since.
The BridgeWay’s longevity in the mental health field in Arkansas makes the institution stand out. The BridgeWay has served generations of Arkansans and continues to improve and deliver strong patient outcomes.
The pandemic created an unprecedented change in the institution’s business practices, but The BridgeWay’s adaptability is a great example of its resilience.
“Mental health professionals, like others, were overwhelmed by the pandemic, but we recognized that mental health symptoms were surging,” says CEO Megan Miller. “Our services continued to be needed more than ever. We chose to use that challenge to evolve, grow and enrich our programs. Even now, with new challenges in infection prevention and staffing, The BridgeWay is adapting to serve.”
Miller says that it’s hard to determine which part of her job she loves most.
“Certainly a top pick is interacting with our staff and patients,” she says. “It’s their ideas, knowledge and strategies that keep us advancing our programs to what our community needs right now. I like to focus on the future and evolve with new medical advancements.”
The staff at The BridgeWay shares that they are deeply flattered the hard work their team has accomplished throughout 2021 is recognized and honored by those whose opinion means the most to them — those they serve.
