Pilgrim Psychiatric Center: Selected Financial Management Practices

Pilgrim Psychiatric Center provides inpatient and outpatient services to adults from Nassau and Suffolk Counties.

We also determined that the Center needed to make greater use of the State’s procurement credit card for small-dollar purchases.
