We Are Here For You!

Recipient Rights

Your Healthcare, Your Choices

As your rights office, we are here to serve you and to ensure that you are treated with dignity and respect while receiving services at HealthWest. When you receive mental health services, Michigan’s Mental Health Code and other laws safeguard your rights. Staff are responsible for protecting your recipient rights when they provide services to you. You are free to ask questions about your treatment and about your rights and to make suggestions that you feel are in your best interest.

If you believe your rights have been violated, you should inform a Rights Officer or Rights Advisor. Contact Linda Wagner, linda.wagner@healthwest.net, or Amanda Absher at amanda.absher@healthwest.net. If you have a question, a concern, or a complaint please call: 231-724-1107 or submit a complaint via fax: 231-724-4445.
