Sheridan (Wyo.) Memorial Hospital has been awarded $5.9 million on behalf of the state's loan and investment board to build an emergency psychiatric assessment, treatment, healing and crisis stabilization unit, the Sheridan Press reported Nov. 22.

The grant will have to be matched one to one and the center will cost $12.8 million total. Its purpose is to help with a growing need of mental and behavioral health services in the area, which are currently underserviced, according to a hospital news release shared with the publication. 

The facility will also have inpatient beds and therapy space. 

Construction must be completed by 2026, per a condition of the grant.
