Dover Behavioral Health System was the first behavioral health provider to partner with a health system in Sussex County to provide psychiatric consultations and ongoing treatment to patients in the primary care and inpatient hospital setting. Dover Behavioral Health psychiatrists routinely see patients of the Nanticoke Health System via a secure, HIPAA-compliant telehealth link. This program, which is covered by most major insurers, provides access to psychiatrists otherwise unavailable to patients in Southern Delmarva.
