We have been working with Forefront at our geriatric psych units in AR and OK and the thing that sets Forefront apart as a great partner is that whenever there are issues that arise from clinical to personalities, I know that I have someone at all levels of the organization who will respond quickly to get a problem resolved with a positive attitude to get everything back on track. Excellent partner for our business.
