CHRISTUS Spohn Health System and Oceans Healthcare announced plans to build a new, state-of-the-art behavioral health unit and add outpatient behavioral health services on the campus of CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi – Shoreline in Texas. The 40-bed unit owned and operated by Oceans Healthcare will expand inpatient bed capacity by more than 20% and allow for the treatment of more clinically acute consumers. The Intensive Outpatient Program will further extend the program’s reach and provide ongoing treatment to individuals managing behavioral health challenges.
Expected to open in the spring of 2022, the 30,000 square-foot “hospital within a hospital” will occupy two floors and provide specialized care to adults 18 and up, as well as seniors aged 55 and older. Once complete, it will replace the behavioral health unit currently located at the CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi – Memorial location.
CHRISTUS Spohn and Texas-based Oceans entered into a management agreement in August 2020 with the intention of expanding behavioral health services in the Coastal Bend region. Since that time, CHRISTUS Spohn has increased its inpatient capacity for adult behavioral health services, treating 27% more consumers than compared to the year prior. The pending expansion will provide the community with new resources and bridge existing gaps in care. The population of Corpus Christi is about 325,000 people.
With nearly two decades of experience delivering comprehensive behavioral health care, Oceans provides CHRISTUS Spohn with access to additional resources and expertise. Oceans has deep experience caring for behavioral health consumers with complex medical needs. This strong clinical foundation, along with its ability to share best practices across its 33 locations, will complement the clinical strength of CHRISTUS Spohn and support the delivery of high-quality care in Nueces County.
CHRISTUS Spohn Health System is the region’s largest hospital system in South Texas, consisting of six hospital campuses throughout the Coastal bend, a Cancer Center, and the new Dr. Hector P.
