Firelands Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce it will be acquiring The Giving Tree, a provider of mental health, drug and alcohol and behavioral health services in Ottawa County. The Giving Tree will be managed by Firelands beginning Jan. 1 and will officially become Firelands Regional Medical Center Counseling and Recovery Services of Ottawa County on April 1, 2014. Services will continue to be offered at The Giving Tree’s current locations in Port Clinton, Oak Harbor and Genoa.
Most importantly, care provided to clients served by The Giving Tree will not see an interruption of their care during the transition. Clients will continue to be served by a local provider which receives the same local funding as The Giving Tree and operates under similar policies and procedures as The Giving Tree.
Firelands Regional Medical Center anticipates transitioning the 35 employees of The Giving Tree over to Firelands Regional Medical Center Counseling and Recovery Services of Ottawa County.
