Willow Rock Center
San Leandro, CA
The Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF) operated by Telecare Corporation at Willow Rock Center is one component of a continuum of care on the Willow Rock campus - a continuum of care that is designed to provide psychiatric crisis stabilization and initial psychiatric treatment for adolescents, aged 12-17, in Alameda County, California. The two additional components of the Willow Rock continuum of care are the Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU) and the short-term mental health treatment outpatient service, both managed by Seneca Center. If, after initial assessment, members of the CSU determine that a teenage patient requires inpatient treatment, the teen can be moved to Willow Rock PHF for further evaluation and treatment.
