Our Story During the Pandemic

Faced with great financial uncertainty and many unknowns about the emerging COVID19 virus, in early March 2020, Wellmore Behavioral Health elected to maintain its Mission focus AND commitment to its staff.  At the time there were approximately 4,500 open clients in our care.  We had little time to develop a plan to sustain our client relationships while supporting our staff and their families through an unprecedented crisis.  Here’s what we did in a nutshell:

  1. The Board of Directors authorized a plan to maintain our entire staff despite the threat of a massive income loss.  You read that right, no one was laid off, no shift hours were reduced, no wages were cut from the day a state of emergency was declared until the present. More than that, targeted hazard pay was issued, performance incentives (sometimes called ‘bonuses’ by others) took place on our normal cycle in spring of 2020 (and at a larger amount than 2019), the company absorbed the increased costs that came with our health insurance renewal and all benefits remained intact.  No staff, no Mission! 

  2. We adopted a new key goal:  To maintain access and choice for all our clients/potential clients.  To achieve this objective, we added telehealth services to our toolbox, altered all our outpatient sites to address health/safety concerns, developed creative care options such as using tents, drive-by/drive-up visits, home visits, and visits outside/on porches/in community settings, all designed to empower our families through offering them the choice of how and when they wanted to be seen.  And choice included face-to-face care options for all programs, services, and settings at a time when few if any other providers in Connecticut were doing so (this still remains true today).    

Now is where you come in.   If our plan resonates with you, you are up for the challenge and want to be a part of our effort to help this community recover from the COVID19 pandemic, come join our team!
