Ellis joins Assemblyman Santabarbara in announcing Austism Center

Thursday, June 4, 2020

The Emergency Room at Ellis Hospital is the first in the nation to earn the Certified Autism Center™ (CAC) designation, granted by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES).

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara joined Ellis Medicine President and CEO Paul Milton and other Ellis officials outside the Emergency Room to announce this first-in-the nation designation.

Santabarbara, chairman of the Assembly's subcommittee on autism spectrum disorders, came to Ellis with the idea for a certified center. He secured $30,000 in state funding for the Ellis pilot program.
