Highlands Hospital Autism Center
Licensed Site for Cleveland Clinic
Highlands Hospital Regional Center for Autism announced on February 20th, 2014 that it is the first licensed site of Cleveland Clinic Children’s Center for Autism in the United States.
The designation allows the facility to expand its outreach to the community and to benefit from the research and expertise offered by the Cleveland Clinic. “They helped to make our vision of opening an autism center a reality,” said Michelle Cunningham, chief executive officer of Highlands Hospital.
“As our first licensed site, Highlands Hospital Center for Autism will benefit from the best practices and research-driven benchmarks we have successfully employed at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Center for Autism,” said Travis Haycook, assistant director for Cleveland Clinic Autism Development Solutions. “This site is working at a level that we truly feel is at the top of their game. It is great to see what is happening here and to see the changes in the children. We are dedicated to supporting this program for years to come.”
Highlands will follow the exact same model of diagnostic evaluation and treatment offered at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Center for Autism. Read more…
