Our broad range of professional services is designed to ensure that sensitive, individualized care is available to everyone seeking help. Last fiscal year, Centerstone served more than 50,000 children, adolescents, adults, seniors, and their families from more than 65 facilities and 140+ schools and community partnership locations throughout the Middle Tennessee region. Centerstone has utilized its resources to develop leading eHealth technology with the potential to not only create greater efficiencies in behavioral healthcare but also, when coupled with our research partnerships, improve outcomes for the people we serve. In 2001, we began the development of an electronic medical record (EMR) that has already improved efficiencies and coordination of care. The EMR database is also fertile ground for researchers as has been proven through our partnerships with Vanderbilt and other leading universities. Constantly motivated by our motto, "everyone matters," this powerful principle inspires us to offer a wide spectrum of services. The belief that everyone matters is not only a heartfelt message to the people we serve, but also a message of thanks to those who give their time, talents, and gifts to help us meet our vision. Hundreds of skilled professionals (1,000 employees), tireless volunteers, and generous donors make a critical difference in Centerstone's ability to fulfill its mission. Their dedicated efforts are the foundation of our success.
