From St. Tammany Health System: St. Tammany Pediatrics Clinic Earns IBCCES Certification as Autism Center

sths

St. Tammany Pediatrics joins St. Tammany Health System pediatric inpatient and emergency departments in earning the Certified Autism Center™ (CAC) designation, granted by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). STHS pediatricians and clinic staff completed autism-specific training and certification to ensure they can better treat and manage the care of autistic patients or patients with sensory needs.

“We are excited to earn this designation because it gives local families confidence that they can entrust their autistic loved one’s care to us,” Cindy Brandon, St. Tammany Pediatrics office manager, said. “Through this process, we have learned how to interact with our autistic patients from the time we enter their care space. Everything we do and how we do it shows that patient that we can be trusted and are there to help. This is vitally important for autistic patients because they experience interpersonal interactions differently, and we’re grateful to IBCCES for instilling these skills in our team.” 

For more than 20 years, IBCCES has been the industry leader in cognitive disorder training and certification for education, healthcare, and corporate professionals around the globe. IBCCES provides evidence-based training and certification programs created in conjunction with clinical experts and individuals with autism in order to provide professionals serving individuals with cognitive disorders a better understanding of what these disorders are, industry best practices, and the latest research in these areas.

“IBCCES is excited to work with another St. Tammany Health System pediatrics department who has made a commitment to treating and understanding the needs of autistic children,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman.

IBCCES also created CertifiedAutismCenter.com, as a free online resource for parents that lists certified locations and professionals. Each organization listed on the site has met Certified Autism Center™ (CAC) requirements.

St. Tammany Pediatrics’ autism certification process was made possible through the generosity of St. Tammany Guild annual giving to St. Tammany Hospital Foundation.

The heartbeat of its community, St. Tammany Health System cares for patients and families with excellence, compassion and teamwork. It is recognized for quality, safety and service excellence by CareChex, Leapfrog, Healthgrades, Hospital Compare, Women’s Choice and US News & World Report.

Together, west St. Tammany’s top two independent health leaders represent the most complete system of care, aligning behind the common goals of improving access, expanding specialty care and making care affordable. Under their agreement, each retains its autonomy; neither manages nor owns the other. Self-supporting, not-for-profit STHS is A+ rated by Fitch and receives no tax funding. More at StTammany.health.

Give the Gift of Hope – Donate to Children’s Advocacy Center Hope House

Published by:

From Children’s Advocacy Center – Hope House Executive Director Thomas Mitchell:

Dear Friend of Hope House,

This year has presented new challenges for us all, but probably none so much as the child abuse victims we serve at Hope House. Most of these children have experienced unfathomable sexual abuse, physical abuse, trafficking, or extreme neglect. The COVID-19 crisis has only amplified our national and local child abuse epidemic. As a united community, we can heal those emotional wounds, get justice for children, and restore faith in families, communities, and institutions.

That’s why I’m writing to ask you to support our shared mission with a tax-deductible, year-end gift.

So far in 2020, Hope House has served nearly 350 child abuse victims right here in St. Tammany and Washington Parishes. That’s more children than any preceding year in our organization’s 26-year history. As you already know, we provide:

  • Forensic interviews, which help local law enforcement bring child abusers to justice
  • Ongoing trauma-focused therapy and advocacy for victims and their non-offending caregivers
  • And abuse prevention education to adults and children throughout our community.

Thanks to the generosity of people like you, we have been able to provide all of these services free of charge, making the Northshore a safer place for children and families. Here’s a glimpse at the real-world impact of your investment:

  • $2,000 covers the cost of a forensic interview, and comprehensive care and services for one child abuse survivor.
  • $1,000 covers the cost of a child’s entire therapy journey following abuse and trauma.
  • $250 covers training to a group of 20 adults to better protect children through our Stewards of Children abuse prevention program.
  • $50 covers the cost of a specialized counseling session for a child abuse survivor.

If you believe, as we do, that the foundation of a strong community starts with the health and wellbeing of our children, please consider making an end-of-year, tax-deductible donation to Children’s Advocacy Center – Hope House. Or take your commitment one step further and become a community partner. Your donation is critical to ending the cycle of child abuse.

Please visit CAChopehouse.org or contact me directly to your donation or learn more about how you can provide hope, healing and justice to our community’s most vulnerable children.

Merry Christmas, and God bless you and your family.

STHS Earns International Autism Certification for Two Pediatric Departments

Published by:

Two St. Tammany Health System Pediatric Departments are now a Certified Autism Center™ (CAC), a designation granted by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES). The designation means that physicians and staff in the inpatient pediatric unit and pediatric emergency department completed an additional autism-specific training and certification program to improve patient outcomes and experiences.

“We are excited to earn this designation because it gives local families confidence that they can entrust their autistic loved one’s care to us,” Cindy Ingram RN, St. Tammany Health System assistant vice president of women’s and children’s care, said. “Through this process, we have learned how to interact with our autistic patients from the time we enter their care space. Everything we do and how we do it shows that patient that we can be trusted and are there to help. This is vitally important for autistic patients because they experience interpersonal interactions differently, and we’re grateful to IBCCES for instilling these skills in our team.”
