Transicare has been the provider of choice for meeting the unique needs that evolve with unanticipated behavioral health care system disruptions or system response to disasters. Beginning with hurricane Katrina and recently with the Ebola NorthSTAR’s behavioral health program has relied on Transicare for tailored care responses.
Beginning in 2005 Transicare developed services to meet the disaster response needs of Dallas county. For hurricanes Katrina, Gustave and Ike Transicare provided on-site 24/7 coverage to address a range of behavioral health concern including triage, psychological first aid, crisis intervention, transportation, pharmacy assistance, nursing care and medication management for specialized needs. In 2014, Transicare was part of the first behavioral health response to Ebola in the United States addressing a range of needs for a quarantined individual.
