It’s OK!  Erica Collins on Treating Mental Disorders at Peachford Hospital

Sep 20, 2014

Having attended Michigan State University, Erica Collins graduated with a degree in Communications and went on to earn a Master’s degree from Loyola University in Healthcare Administration and Marketing.  After a stint with the University of Chicago Hospital, she relocated to Atlanta and began looking for a position that blended her sales experience with her passion for healthcare.   For the past 13 years Erica has been employed with Peachford Hospital where she is currently the Director of Business Development.

In the time that Erica has been with Peachford, the hospital has grown from a 184 to a 246 bed facility.  She attributes this growth to a change in the public’s perception. Erica is a strong advocate for getting the word out that, “It’s OK to seek treatment for mental disorders”.

Peachford Hospital is one of the premiere providers of mental health and chemical dependency treatment in Atlanta.  Peachford’s ability to treat individuals from as young as age 4 to individuals well into their senior years makes Peachford unique.
