Important messages from our CEO

Swanson Center has made a commitment to providing the highest level of clinical care possible while meeting the needs of the community and minding our mission. It is exciting to be a part of a team that is so committed to aiding those who are seriously impacted by the effects of mental illness.

Dan Peck, Executive Director & CEO

You asked we listened. Previously we had intake wait times of nearly 36 days; now it’s approximately 3. By listening to you, our community, we’ve been able to increase access to treatment for everyone.

Dan Peck, Executive Director & CEO

Through our Access Center, we’re now offering same-day intake services which has decreased our initial contact to intake by over 85% and we’re now in a better position to serve our community. You asked we listened.
