'State-of-the-art' behavioral health unit to open in Maryland

MedStar Health celebrated the completion of its new behavioral health unit at MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center in Clinton with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. 

The $7.6 million budget partially came from both federal and state funding dedicated to addressing the rise in behavioral health challenges affecting the area, according to a May 10 press release.

The unit comes with a dedicated examination space, quiet room, administrative area and four separate treatment units. 

"The new tools and upgrades we've incorporated into our clinic are designed to help patients recover physically, mentally, and emotionally, during what is likely one of the most stressful moments of their lives," said Stephen Michaels, MD, president of MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center.

The unit will officially open to patients later this month.
