7 new behavioral health centers

Six new behavioral health centers that were announced or covered in the first two weeks of March:

1. The Tulalip Tribes were approved to build a 32-bed behavioral health facility in Stanwood, Wash. The project aims to build two 16-bed buildings that will serve adult patients who commit themselves for inpatient treatment or who are committed by court order. However, the facility will not serve patients who are currently in the criminal justice system due to the conditional use permit.

2. New York plans to allocate $10 million to two youth mental health networks across the state. Funding will be dispersed through the state's Office of Mental Health. The commitment will complement Gov. Kathy Hochul's $1 billion mental healthcare plan for the state. 

3. Cohen Veterans Network, a national nonprofit organization providing mental healthcare to service members, opened a treatment center in Torrance, Calif. The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic will provide mental health treatment to more than 68,000 veterans, active duty service members and their families. It will also provide telehealth care to more than 1 million military community members across California.

4. Phoenix-based Connections Health Solutions is opening a mental health crisis care center in Kirkland, Wash. The state's King County invested $11.5 million to create the center, the first of its kind in the area.

5. Silver Spring, Md.-based Little Leaves Behavioral Services opened a new location in Frederick, its seventh in Maryland.

6. Bethlehem, Pa.-based St. Luke’s University Health Network will soon open a 13-bed, $6.4 million behavioral health unit renovation at its Quakertown campus.

7. Brentwood, Tenn.-based Lifepoint Behavioral Health and Lynchburg, Va.-based Centra Health entered a joint venture to open a new inpatient behavioral health hospital. The Centra Behavioral Health Hospital will be approximately 75,000 square feet and have 72 beds.
