Otsuka - Vivli

At our core is perseverance, a fierce determination to overcome any obstacle regardless of setbacks, on behalf of patients and their loved ones. We place greater value on what we can achieve together than on what we can do alone because the needs of those we serve always come first. We will not be bound by doing what’s been done before. Instead, we free ourselves from preconceived notions to discover solutions that advance patient care. Our mission is clear: Otsuka-people, creating new products for better health worldwide.

We are doing everything in our power to live up to our mission in three important categories.

Neuroscience

Our driving philosophy at Otsuka is to serve those with unmet medical needs, and that couldn’t be more true than in our dedication to the central nervous system (CNS) space. In our 30 years of experience working in this therapeutic area, we continue to innovate and defy limitation by taking risks to overcome the complexities of treating mental health. We respect the value within every mind and are committed to making a difference in the lives of patients living with schizophrenia, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, and other CNS conditions.

Nephrology

When Otsuka saw a need for clinical expertise and research in the nephrology space, we decided to lead the way. For more than 20 years, we have been bringing our research and expertise to this therapeutic area. We have focused on developing novel drugs in areas of unmet need, such as autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease and hyponatremia, that have changed the treatment landscape. Our long-term perseverance has led to major breakthroughs, giving patients renewed hope and clinicians more options than ever before.

Digital Innovation

Digital technology has not only changed the world we live in, but it is also changing the face of healthcare. Otsuka is at the forefront of this transformative juncture in medicine, creating novel solutions that help address the challenges of those living with serious mental illness. We believe our investment and leadership in this therapeutic area will revolutionize patient care as we know it. Patients will be able to engage and communicate with their care teams in new ways, and clinicians will have data-driven insights that may help inform treatment decisions.

The mission of RRCS is to improve the quality of life in Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, and Rappahannock Counties by providing comprehensive behavioral health, developmental disability, substance use disorder, and aging services.

RRCS strives to accomplish its mission by offering a comprehensive array of services in our local communities.

The local governments of Planning District 9 (Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Orange, and Rappahannock) formed the Rappahannock-Rapidan Community Services Board. At this same time, the Planning District Commission recommended that the newly formed Community Services Board also provide services under Title III of the Older Americans Act. These events formed and created a combined area agency on aging and community services board – a unique organization at its inception and it continues to be the only such combined agency in Virginia. Its combined statutory mission rests with its Area Plan for Aging Services (Federal Older Americans Act), and Virginia Code 37.1 through its Performance Contract with the Virginia State Department of Behavioral Health and Disability Services.

In 2011, we updated our name to “doing business as” Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services (RRCS).

Richmond Behavioral Health Authority (RBHA) is licensed by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and is the statutorily established public entity responsible for providing mental health, intellectual disabilities, and substance abuse and prevention services to the citizens of the City of Richmond. Services are provided directly by RBHA staff and through contracts with private providers in the community.

RBHA was established in July 1996 by resolution of the City Council of the City of Richmond. Prior to that time, RBHA's services were included as part of City government. The Authority stands as an independent quasi-government entity, governed by the Board of Directors through the Chief Executive. Funding is received through fees from consumers, the Commonwealth of Virginia, local and state grants, and the City of Richmond.

In FY2019, RBHA provided critical behavioral and primary medical services to nearly 13,000 individuals – that’s over 5% of the population of the City of Richmond. Approximately 30% of RBHA consumers have no Medicaid, insurance, or other means of paying for vital services.

RBHA also serves as the fiscal and administrative agent for an array of programs that serve all seven Community Services Boards in the central Virginia region. The participating CSBs in Region 4 are Chesterfield, Crossroads (Farmville area), District 19 (Petersburg area), Goochland-Powhatan, Hanover, Henrico Area, and the RBHA. These programs have proven to fill critical needs throughout Region 4 and have been growing tremendously in recent years.
