The Bob Janes Triage Center
The Bob Janes Triage Center & Low Demand Shelter, a 55-bed unit located in Bldg. K on SalusCare’s Ortiz Campus, is for individuals who are at risk for committing minor non-violent crimes, and suffer from a behavioral health crisis. Individuals are accepted from the hours of 9:00 a.m. until 12:45 a.m. The Triage Center is staffed by medical and behavioral health professionals from SalusCare, The Salvation Army and Lee Health. The goal is to reduce the number of individuals with known mental illness or substance use disorders who are arrested and taken to the Lee County jail for low-level offenses.
The facility is operated as a multi-agency collaborative effort among SalusCare, Lee Health, Lee County Human & Veteran Services, United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades & Okeechobee Counties and all local law enforcement. To learn more, visit the Triage Center website below.
