SEARHC now offering behavioral health, dentistry
June 10, 2021
SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium has expanded its services in Petersburg and taken over two locally operated health providers in the past three months.
After a series of funding cuts, Susan Ohmer, executive director and founder of Petersburg Mental Health Services, decided to transfer PMHS' services and offices over to SEARHC, she said in a letter to the public in March.
"I am pleased with how SEARHC has worked collaboratively to keep our wonderful PMHS team in place as they expand behavioral health services beyond what we could afford to do," said Ohmer in her letter.
