Executive Director Virtual Outpatient Services
Mark Baumgartner’s clinical and leadership career spans more than three decades and a broad range of the substance use disorder and mental health treatment continuum. In March 2021, he joined the Meadows Behavioral Healthcare team to provide leadership for the expansion of their world-class treatment programs into the virtual outpatient environment. It’s an area where he has hands-on experience. In 2020, he led a substance use disorder (SUD) and co-occurring mental health outpatient clinic in Houston that had to pivot to exclusively providing Telehealth IOP and PHP services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Baumgartner also spent more than 18 years at The Betty Ford Center, his last five as executive director. One of his proudest career achievements was providing key leadership for the success of the Betty Ford-Hazelden Foundation merger and leading the launch of the Betty Ford Center expansion in West Los Angeles. Throughout his career, he also established treatment delivery innovations to improve patient outcomes and engagement. He developed the Young Adult Program at the Betty Ford Center and the Wellness pilot program that was the basis for Miraval Health Spa in Tucson. Previous experience also includes clinical management at The Texas Department of Juvenile Justice and at Sierra Tucson, where he started his career as a therapist in 1991.
Born in Rochester, Minnesota, Baumgartner earned a Master of Education degree in counseling from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in Texas and a Nationally Certified Counselor. In 2015, under the supervision of Allen Berger, PhD, he received a certification in Gestalt Psychotherapy from the California Institute of Gestalt Experiential Therapy in Los Angeles.
Growing up in the Midwest, the YMCA camps in northern Minnesota became like a second home, leading Baumgartner to minor in forestry/recreation while studying psychology. During college he started his own recovery. It was then that he realized he could merge his areas of study and help others, something he’s been successfully doing for decades.
A father of twins, family is definitely important to Baumgartner. He’s also a dedicated mountain biker, adding that “moving through the wilderness on two wheels is one of my passions.” Involved in a recovery community that shares an interest in live music, he enjoys almost any type of outdoor recreation, and he’s passionate about fitness and wellness.
