In 2005, Way Station and the Turning Point of Washington County, another affiliate program of the Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Health Foundation, were consolidated in an effort to position both organizations to grow and thrive. The consolidation of these two strong affiliates has resulted in dynamic synergism that will ultimately benefit the clients, employees, and communities of both organizations.
