Dear Friends:

Timberlawn Behavioral Health is no longer providing psychiatric services as of February 16, 2018. Our top priority over the recent past has been to ensure a smooth transition for patients and their families. We can confirm that we have arranged for every patient to receive appropriate care at other nearby facilities or discharged to outpatient care.

For close to one hundred years, Timberlawn has been privileged to provide behavioral health services to residents of the greater Dallas region — adolescents and adults seeking specialized treatment during some of the most difficult periods of their lives. Our trained, compassionate staff has been committed to delivering quality patient care with dignity and respect, with the goal of helping our patients return to their communities as healthier individuals. We are extremely proud of the sacrifices of those who worked every day, often under challenging circumstances, to positively impact our patients’ lives.

It is in this spirit that we would like to reflect on the many accomplishments of Timberlawn and its staff.  Over the past decade, Timberlawn and its dedicated team of physicians, nurses, mental health technicians and support staff provided compassionate, specialized behavioral health treatments and positively impacted the lives of thousands of patients and their families.

Timberlawn maintained a record of positive recognition on third-party measured, evidence-based clinical performance metrics. In recent years, Timberlawn routinely outperformed the national and Texas averages for the vast majority of measured criteria for patient care. In addition to robust performance on industry clinical metrics, Timberlawn patients regularly reported high satisfaction with the care they received based on the results of thousands of anonymous voluntary surveys.

These are just some of the many important accomplishments achieved by Timberlawn and its staff, which have directly and positively influenced thousands of lives. We believe this will be its lasting legacy and one that we can proudly embrace.

 

Sincerely,
Timberlawn Leadership Team
