Plans For New Psychiatric Hospital Unveiled In Houston

first_imgImage courtesy of UTHealthRendering of the UTHealth Continuum of Care Campus for Behavioral Health.Plans for a new psychiatric hospital in Houston were unveiled Friday.The name of the facility will be UTHealth Continuum of Care Campus for Behavioral Health. It is a joint project of the Texas State Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).The facility, which will be located in the Texas Medical Center, is greatly needed because one in 25 adults in Harris County has a serious mental illness and there aren’t enough beds for those requiring hospitalization.The campus was created with $125 million in state funds approved by the 2017 Legislative Budget Board and Gov. Greg Abbott to HHSC. It is part of a large initiative to improve behavioral health across the state.Once complete, the campus, which includes the new hospital and UTHealth Harris County Psychiatric Center (HCPC), will become the largest academic psychiatric  hospital in the United States.Stephen Glazier, chief operating officer of UTHealth’s Harris County Psychiatric Center, will oversee the new hospital. He said the hospital will hopefully take pressure off of facilities that aren’t able to meet demand — especially in crisis cases, which fall under acute care. “We absolutely need more acute care beds,” Glazier noted, “and this building is going to address that.”With an additional 240 beds arranged in 10 units, the new hospital will focus on reducing rapid readmissions and improving outcomes for super utilizers – those with four or more stays per year.The facility will also have subacute care units for patients who need a longer stay to heal.Glazier said they will break ground on the hospital this summer and hopefully complete construction by the end of 2021.Editor’s Note: Based on information provided by UTHealth’s Media Relations Department, the original version of this story incorrectly reported the UTHealth Continuum of Care Campus for Behavioral Health is the first psychiatric hospital built in Houston in the last 30 years. However, the Menninger Clinic opened a psychiatric hospital located near the Texas Medical Center in April 2012. This story has been updated. Sharelast_img read more
