According to Solstice Southwest Psychiatrist Dr. Randall Turner, 'Solstice Southwest is the best alternative to an inpatient hospital. Every patient receives our proprietary Solstice Southwest patient Handbook covering 13 skills. We provide individuals space in a new environment to hasten the symptom relief they desire. The key to new habits is the schedule, continuity and patterns we manage in our clinic.'
Solstice Southwest prepared for accreditation by training staff on systems including informed consent, rounds, health equity, communication, assessment, groups, individual sessions, discharge and mental health urgent care. Through mock surveys and daily staff huddles, Solstice ensures a standard for customer service that their Texas customers appreciate.

We dare set the standard for customer service in mental health care so we need The Joint Commission's objectivity and analysis. For decades, Texas hospitals have looked for a strong resource for the suicidal, homicidal or self-medicating patient. We curated a continuum of care that is in the continuous performance improvement discipline all year round.'
