The Legacy mission of making life better for others includes the whole person. Our mental health providers focus on the mental, emotional and behavioral health of a variety of patients. For some, this is their primary reason for seeking medical attention; for others, a contributing factor has weakened their psychological state. No matter the circumstances, their cases must be viewed with professionalism and compassion. Are you committed to improving the psychological well-being of patients and giving them the best possible chance for strong mental health? If so, we invite you to consider joining the Legacy community.
