Joint venture partners Beaumont Health and Universal Health Services announced the name of their new behavioral health hospital, Beaumont Behavioral Health, which is under construction and is expected to open this fall.
“The new Beaumont Behavioral Health will play a key role in addressing the growing, unmet need for accessible, high-quality and advanced mental health services in Southeast Michigan and across the state,” says Diane Henneman, divisional VP of the behavioral health division at UHS. “We will provide specialized, outcomes-based, compassionate care, in an environment that supports healing and inspires hope.”
The new facility will contain 144 beds and cost $40 million and is located across the street from Beaumont Hospital Dearborn on eight acres on Oakwood Boulevard near the Southfield Freeway.
As previously announced, the new facility will double Beaumont’s current capacity for inpatient mental health care; provide highly specialized academic training programs, including the addition of Beaumont graduate medical education programs in psychiatry, psychopharmacology and other clinical training opportunities; offer enhanced and expanded intensive day programs; leverage the collaboration of multidisciplinary teams including psychiatrists, internal medicine physicians, other specialists, clinical pharmacists, social workers, psychologists, therapists and other clinical support staff; and include an integrated assessment and referral center to support the community and Beaumont Health emergency centers.
“Beaumont Health and UHS are striving to provide patients and their loved ones with compassionate and high-quality mental health care, services and support,” says John Fox, CEO of Beaumont Health. “We know this new facility will provide much-needed services for our communities. Our new campus will be the ‘hub’ from which we will coordinate all inpatient and day program mental health care, clinical training and innovative new approaches to care.”
All inpatient mental health services across Beaumont Health will be incorporated into this location, which will serve pediatric through adult patients.
Beaumont Health is among Michigan’s largest health care systems. The system includes eight hospitals with 3,375 beds, 155 outpatient sites, nearly 5,000 affiliated physicians, 1,800 advanced practice providers, 9,000 nurses and 2,000 volunteers.
