This program is one that FamilyLight sm intends to review online. We are hoping LaAmistad return the questionnaire we have developed so we can be most thorough. Pending that we provide some information.
(Article continues below box)
La Amistad is owned and operated by Universal Health Services, Inc.
La Amistad serves children, adolescents, and young adults. Children and adolescents are served the Maitland FL campus, and young adults are served in the nearby Winter Park campus.
La Amistad has a well appointed physical plant in each location along with highly skilled clinical staff. We believe that LaAmistad is operated substantially in compliance with standards for comparable facilities. When our consultant visited we were largely positive about what was in place at the time except that we did not believe that they recognized the importance of front line non-clinical staff in the change process.
We believe that LaAmistad has the potential to be a superior facility. We are anxious to see what will be reported on a questionnaire response. We are hopeful for the basis for a strong endorsement, but not yet prepared to offer it.
While you wait for us to present a more complete review, please look around this website. Look at our Guidelines -- a fairly comprehensive statement of what we believe quality is all about. If you come to a search and planning process with limited experience, this is an opportunity for you to find some principles to measure schools and programs against.
Keep coming back to see the updates. Look at "What's New" (Announcements). In spring of 2009 we expect to have returns from schools, programs, and related organizations published, giving deeper insight into these than has ever been available on the web before.
Feedback is invited. We will publish any feedback in good taste. Email FamilyLightResponse@yahoo.com
Disclaimer: No program review, no matter how positive, is a blanket endorsement. No criticism is a blanket condemnation. When we express our level of confidence in a school or program, that is our subjective opinion with which others might reasonably disagree. When we assert something as fact, we have done our best to be accurate, but we cannot guarantee that all of our information is accurate and up to date. When we address compliance with our guidelines, you need to remember that these are only OUR guidelines -- not guidelines from an official source. We have also set the bar very high, and do not expect any school or program to be in total compliance. It is not appropriate to draw a conclusion of impropriety (or even failure to live up to conventional wisdom) from our lack of confidence in a school or program or from less than perfect conformity to our guidelines. Some will say we expect too much. Readers are responsible for verifying accuracy of information supplied here prior to acting upon it. We are not responsible for inaccuracies.
