Bridgeway's Client/Patient Service Center

Hello Everyone!

The week of August 6, I started the process of making the Bridgeway Center's Hospital Drive location, in Ft. Walton Beach, a client/patient “service center”. We are relocating Soundside Wellness Consultants (SWC) South staff to offices at Hospital Drive. I am also relocating case management staff to the Hospital Drive location. This will enable therapy, case management, and doctor services to be co-located in one building and greatly improve coordination of care for our clients/patients. There is more available client parking at Hospital Drive as well. 

In order to do this, most of the Administrative staff, to include myself, are moving to Shell Avenue – Building A. The address is 205 Shell Avenue Building A, Ft. Walton Beach, FL 32548. All phone and fax numbers will remain the same. 

This move will also result in the addition of three therapy group rooms at Hospital Drive, and an employee break area. Also as a result of this re-organization, Doctor services will have more space with room for expansion, if needed, and their own waiting area. This will include a separate play area for children. There are many administrative and clinical support efficiencies to be gained by co-locating Ft. Walton Beach therapy and doctor services.  

The moves will be finalized by the end of August. SWC-South clients and patients are being informed of the office location change verbally via telephone calls. They are being reassured that they will be able to continue to see their therapist and prescriber at Hospital Drive.
