PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration and Support Program is to provide the management structure and overall administrative direction and financing necessary to ensure adequate professional and non-professional level services and therapeutic environment essential for effective evaluation and treatment of psychiatric patients.

The goals of the Administration and Support Program are:

1. Provide leadership, program support, program development, education/training, record keeping, and maximization of resources.

2. Provide all necessary health, ancillary or general support services needed to ensure the efficient operation of the hospital in providing appropriate psychiatric treatment in a safe and therapeutic environment, all in accordance with governing, licensing, and accreditation bodies and standards.

The Administration and Support Program is responsible for the management of and operational support for the provision of a comprehensive array of mental health services. These services are delivered through an integrated system of patient care services in a manner consistent with all federal/state certification, licensing, governing body, legislative mandates, and other regulatory body standards, including the maintaining of HCFA (Health Care Financing Administration) and JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations) accreditation.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indictors are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).

DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 78.5% of the existing operating budget. It represents 84.0% of the total request ($2,838,416) for this program. The major changes reflected in this analysis include a reduction of $77,680 for risk management premiums; a decrease of $103,111 in acquisitions and major repairs; and a decrease of $453,403 to fully fund salaries in other programs. The changes should have no significant impact on the delivery of these services.
