Pennsylvania hospital to build 44-bed, $14M behavioral health facility

Indiana (Pa.) Regional Medical Center is set to begin construction on a 31,000-square-foot, 44-bed behavioral health facility. The project will cost $14 million.

The hospital partnered with the Armstrong-Indiana-Clarion Drug and Alcohol Commission, the Armstrong-Indiana Behavioral Health and Development Program, and Southwest Behavioral Health Management to get a $4.8 million state reinvestment grant to help cover the cost of construction.

Construction is set to finish near the end of 2023, according to an Oct. 20 IRMC news release.

"As an independent community hospital, we understand the needs of the people we serve," IRMC CEO and President Stephen Wolfe said. "Behavioral health needs have been a critical issue for some time and only worsened due to the pandemic. Our hope is to provide care and comfort to the patients and families affected."
