The collaborative learning style established by our team will allow hospitals in our PPS to work together and learn from one another while maintaining the autonomy to implement the SBIRT process in a way that may be unique to their facility.
The growing SCC SBIRT Implementation Team consists of 30 representatives from across our PPS network including: Suffolk County Department of Health, Family Service League of Long Island, OASAS, Town of Babylon, Drug and Alcohol Services, Mather Hospital, Peconic Bay Medical Center, Stony Brook Medicine, North Shore LIJ Health System and the Catholic Health Services.
