MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Miami-based Ketamine Health Centers (KHC) announced today its expansion into Palm Beach County, at 1411 North Flagler Drive, Suite 9000 in West Palm Beach. This is the company’s second location, with its primary facility headquartered in Miami, which will service patients in Palm Beach and surrounding areas, as well as those visiting the market to seek treatment.
KHC’s new office will increase its Florida footprint in providing Ketamine Infusion Therapy -- the process of receiving ketamine in low doses, intravenously, in a medically-monitored setting for the treatment of mental health conditions and chronic pain. The company prides itself on providing the highest-caliber of ketamine delivery through top-rated infusion pumps. With a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to delivering long-term solutions for mental health conditions, KHC’s success rate for treating depression surpasses the national average, exceeding 85 percent.
As a prominent ketamine infusion therapy practice, KHC is the only full-service health facility in South Florida dedicated to Ketamine Infusion Therapy via the joint expertise of a board-certified anesthesiologist and psychiatrist. The team brings to its patients decades of combined experience in the use of ketamine. Leading the Palm Beach office will be anesthesiologist Dr. Rosemary Daly and psychiatrist Dr. Francisco Cruz, both of whom will serve as the medical directors.
“Our entrance into Palm Beach satisfies increasing demand for our treatment strategy utilizing the unique, combined proficiencies of an anesthesiologist and psychiatrist,” said Dr. Cruz. “We look forward to engaging with our patients to improve their quality of life, and reaching new markets to provide the highest level of care in ketamine therapy.”
Dr. Cruz is double-board certified in general psychiatry and addiction medicine. He has been successfully treating individuals with mental health disorders for more than 13 years, including those suffering from chronic treatment-resistant depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, PTSD, and substance use disorders. Working alongside him at KHC, Daly is an award-winning interventional spine/pain medical physician board-certified in both anesthesiology and pain medicine. With more than 30 years of experience, her comprehensive approach focuses on treatment plans that offer a long-term reduction of chronic and debilitating pain.
In addition to its expansion, Ketamine Health Centers continues to introduce new services that enhance the benefits of Ketamine Infusion Therapy. Most recently, the health center became one of the few U.S. ketamine treatment facilities, and the only in Florida, to offer Ketamine Assisted Therapy (KAT) – a talk-therapy-style session that occurs while a patient undergoes ketamine infusion treatment. During this time, individuals discover and explore the psychological aspects of their depression. The therapeutic experience enhances the overall treatment process by enabling patients to more comfortably process thoughts and feelings in an uninhibited state. KAT will also be available at the Palm Beach County location.
In recent years, ketamine has earned increased attention from the medical field for its breakthroughs in the treatment of depression, currently a leading cause of disability in the U.S. and worldwide. As prominently profiled in TIME magazine, the U.S. economy alone has incurred a loss of $210 billion per year due to decreased productivity, increased days absent from work and extended medical attention for physical/mental illnesses associated with depression. In fact, 30 percent of individuals have no response to traditional antidepressants. Thus, ketamine is evolving into a revolutionary alternative, giving hope to those who were once hopeless.
