The Memphis Rape Crisis Program is a centralized, outpatient, nonhospital unit, employing professionally trained nonphysician personnel for the management and treatment of the sexually abused and assaulted victim. This unit provided immediate medical treatment and counseling services to 1,690 sexual assault victims during 1986. Of these, 661 were less than 12 years of age, and 328 were between the ages of 13 and 18 years. The advantages of this centralized, nonhospital system compared with the traditional hospital-based system are detailed. The feasibility of developing a similar program in other communities is discussed.
