The Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners has taken the final step in completing the transfer of MeckLINK Behavioral Healthcare Services.

On Feb. 4, 2014, the Board voted 9-0 to hand over day-to-day operations to Cardinal Innovations Healthcare Solutions based in Kannapolis. Cardinal will take over day-to-day operations beginning April 1, 2014.

MeckLINK is currently the County department that provides mental health, substance abuse and developmental disabilities services to Mecklenburg residents. However, a law passed by the N.C. Legislature last June requires that MeckLINK be managed by an independent authority by the end of March 2014.
