isher is the Associate Director of Psychiatric Education and Training at UMASS. During these visits, they toured all areas of the facility, noted aspects of the physical plant, observed groups and meals, spoke to staff and most importantly spoke to children and adolescents who are Streamwood Hospital's patients.

Their comprehensive 47 page report concluded, "on the whole, SBHS is an excellent facility that provides quality care to the majority of its patients. The staff is caring and upbeat, the professionals are knowledgeable and competent, and the facilities are comfortable and child-centered. With some polishing, SBHC could improve further, however, and . . . [provide] a gold-standard quality of care."

"We will take these observations into account as we proactively implement these patient improvement programs at Streamwood Hospital," said Meyer.

The Joint Commission survey identified three areas unrelated to direct patient care for improvement but also commended the facility for its exemplary programs. Streamwood submitted action plans for improvements that were accepted with continued monitoring ongoing.

The Commission was impressed with the multidisciplinary team approach to staffing and involving the outside community agencies. The staff was observed doing a good job maintaining safety and assessing risk in the individual milieus. Additionally, the treatment teams were found to have great care plans for the patients. Moreover, programming and patient management at multiple levels was seen as very organized. With Medical Reconciliation, it was noted Streamwood Hospital's process is "ahead compared to other facilities."

The Streamwood clinical consultative team working with Dr. Leventhal to provide the highest level of care for patients includes Dr. Virginia S. Villani, the medical director of the Kennedy Krieger School Program of Baltimore, a widely regarded autism program; Dr. Robert Kowatch, the director
