Program Authorization: Act 253 of 1972 and Act 40 of the 1981 Special Session

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration and Support Program is responsible for the management of and operational support for the regional provision of a comprehensive array of mental health services which are hospital delivered through an integrated system of directly operated and contracted community and hospital inpatient programs.

The goal of the Administration and Support Program is to provide administrative direction for the implementation of programs within the continuum of services, planning, development and evaluation services for New Orleans Adolescent Hospital, and the establishment and maintenance of an environment which fosters and complements the mission of the hospital.

The Administration and Support Program provides operational support to the hospital and outpatient clinics through its departmental activities which include Administration (CEO, program management), Administrative Services (human resources, fiscal/business office, material management), Environmental Services (housekeeping, maintenance, powerhouse), and General Support Services (information management, communication, safety, security).

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).

 

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM

SOURCE OF FUNDING

The Administration and Support Program is funded from Interagency Transfers.
