New collaboration adds primary care to Syntero
The Syntero Dublin location, formerly the Dublin Counseling Center, at 299 Cramer Creek Court, added primary care to its behavioral healthcare services Sept. 4.
To offer behavioral and primary healthcare under the same roof, Syntero partnered with Columbus Neighborhood Health Center, a nonprofit organization that provides services to people experiencing financial, social and cultural barriers to healthcare.
“We reached out to them because we knew they already had experience with integrated sites,” Syntero CEO Julie Erwin Rinaldi said.
With changes in Medicare reform, healthcare is trending toward integrated services, Rinaldi said.
“It really makes sense for our clients,” she said. “It’s much more effective to have everything under one roof.”
