As part of Bryan Medical Center, the Bryan Independence Center has access to a full array of medical services and health professionals to better meet the many needs of each unique client.
Being hospital-based provides access to services such as: pharmacy, laboratory, radiology, emergency medical services, nutrition needs and more. Each client is assigned an attending doctor who completes an initial history and physical and determines all care received by the client.
Our attending doctors are psychiatrists from the Bryan Heartland Psychiatry group. Other doctors are available for consultation on other medical conditions.
We are fully accredited by the Joint Commission within the Behavioral Healthcare Standards.
Often, patients admitted to a hospital for health problems also have substance use or addiction issues that are complicating their overall health. A patient's attending doctor can request a consult by an intervention nurse.
The intervention nurse acts as a liaison between Bryan Independence Center, Lincoln hospitals, medical personnel and other health-related agencies in the evaluation and referral of substance use clients.
Intervention nurses assess the patient for a possible substance use or addiction issue and make a recommendation to both the patient and the attending physician. Outcomes are more positive for the patient when substance use or addiction issues are identified and treated as another aspect of the overall medical care the patient is already receiving.
