Outpatient mental health center opens in West Sacramento
Sacramento Business Journal

Heritage Oaks Hospital has opened an outpatient center in West Sacramento designed to provide mental health patients an alternative to inpatient care. The new program opened at 2945 Ramco Street in West Sacramento late last month. It provides a range of services to keep patients out of the hospital or help them transition from hospital care to life back in the community. The new center fills another gap in community-based treatment that seeks to reduce unnecessary emergency room visits and hospitalization in Sacramento County following drastic service cuts in the recession.
