Behavioral Health Teaching

We are thrilled to announce Phoenix Preferred Care is now a Behavioral Health teaching site for the Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program. Family Medicine Residency is an innovative program that incorporates both inpatient and outpatient medicine experiences as well as sub-specialty rotations into a dynamic education process. With this partnership, we are continuing our commitment to bridge the gap between behavioral and physical health.

Our first resident rotation is Mark Ansel Peacock, DO. Dr. Peacock has gained behavioral health knowledge through participating in direct client care and collaboration with community partners. He is seen here with Principal, Lisa Black and Family Resource Center Coordinator, Kelly Leigh at one of our school-based clinic Sites, Eubank Elementary.

Pictured below are Dr. Diana Tacelosky, Ph.D, MD and Gwen West,  MSW, LCSW, RPT, CAS discussing play therapy and how they can work together to meet needs of patients.

Phoenix Preferred Care shall not deny access to services due to a client’s inability to pay. A discounted/sliding fee schedule is available for individuals who qualify based on income/household size. Phoenix Preferred Care does not discriminate based on an individual’s race, color, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, national origin, disability, religion, age and/or sexual orientation.
