Psychiatrist joins Park Street Clinic

Jul 26,2013
Park Street Clinic in Lebanon welcomes psychiatric physician Mandilin Hudson, DO.

Dr. Hudson practices general adult and adolescent psychiatry, integrating mental health treatment with primary care. She utilizes a variety of treatment methods including psychotherapy, medication management, psycho-education and group therapy.

Dr. Hudson earned a bachelor’s degree at Willamette University, a medical degree at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific, and completed residency training at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, serving patients of Samaritan Family Medicine and Samaritan Mental Health.

Dr. Hudson is the first mental health resident to join Samaritan following graduation from the program.

“It is gratifying to see this kind of success in the residency program,” said Samaritan Chief of Psychiatry Mike May, MD. ”Dr. Hudson is a wonderful example of how our Graduate Medical Education program is increasing the number of highly-qualified health care providers in the region. We anticipated a good number of physicians would stay in the area after completing their residencies. Our goal is to meet the growing community need for health care providers, and we are so happy to be able to say ‘It’s working!’”

Dr. Hudson will see patients from East Linn County by provider referral at Park Street Clinic two days a week.

Including psychiatric care in in a primary care clinic is an example of the patient-centered medical home model of health care. This model of health care integrates physical and mental health care through a team-based, proactive, individualized approach for patients of all ages.
