Joint venture partners Beaumont Health and Universal Health Services announced the name of their new behavioral health hospital: Beaumont Behavioral Health. This new facility is currently under construction and expected to open in the fall.
The new $40 million, 144-bed facility currently under construction is located across the street from Beaumont Hospital, Dearborn, on eight acres of vacant land 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 professionals, 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.
Over the next two years, inpatient mental health services across Beaumont Health will consolidate at this location, serving pediatric through adult consumers. The current outpatient and day programs across Beaumont’s system will be enhanced to continue to meet the needs of consumers who desire outpatient treatment closer to home.
Over time, Beaumont will implement a comprehensive telemedicine program that will support its nine emergency rooms and other consumer care settings across the system. This advanced technology will offer faster, remote access to health care providers and services.
