Alabama Psychiatric Services announced they will be closing all of their statewide offices, including three in Mobile and Baldwin counties on Friday, Feb. 13, according to a statement on their website.
“It has been our privilege to have offered services to our clients across Alabama, and to have been a critical part of the behavioral health service delivery system across our great state,” the statement read. “At the request of Blue Cross/Blue Shield, we opened offices throughout Alabama. Unfortunately, due to a decrease in funding from Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Alabama and a change in its model of providing behavioral health, we are not able to continue our mission.”
APS is making every effort to provide care and transition patients to other providers, according to the statement.
The APS website lists three locations in Mobile and Baldwin counties. An outpatient clinic and a partial hospital on Montlimar Drive in Mobile and an outpatient clinic on U.S. Highway 98 in Fairhope.
