Abstract

Nurse-managed centers have been at the forefront of providing ambulatory care alternatives for underserved populations lacking access to care. Following this model, the Center for Integrated Health Care of the College of Nursing at the University of Illinois in Chicago delivers primary and mental health care services to a population of people with serious and persistent mental illness. The authors' experience illustrates the many rewards and challenges that nurse-managed centers face. This article describes their center's model of integrated care, examines selected performance indicators, and discusses the implications, opportunities, and challenges ahead.
