Expanding 行为健康 护理 in Calvert

网上买球软件 Medical Center’s 行为健康 Unit will have a temporary disruption of service beginning on June 1 as 网上买球软件 works to renovate our 行为健康 Unit to provide expanded, age-appropriate therapeutic environments for those requiring inpatient services.

It is recommended that during this 5-week period, all behavioral health patients go to their nearest Emergency Department for a psychiatric evaluation.

后的竞争, this renovation will have a significant impact on the growing number of people – both young and old – who seek behavioral health services at 网上买球软件 Medical Center. The project will reconfigure the existing 行为健康 floor into two wings: one for adolescents 13-17 years old and one for adults. Both wings will have inpatient rooms, dining and social areas, 咨询的房间, staff facilities and areas for outpatient use.

“As the sole provider of inpatient behavioral health services in Calvert County, updating the patient areas and services we offer will allow us to meet the growing need for emergency and long-term mental health care,Jennifer L说。. Messix, BSN, RN-BC, the unit’s director.

The 10-month renovation is anticipated to cost more than $5 million and is partially funded through an award of a $1.7 bond grant through the state of Maryland under the Maryland Hospital Association’s bond project program– the largest grant ever awarded to an individual organization. 网上买球软件 is matching those funds with a portion being raised by philanthropy.

网上买球软件’s partial hospitalization program will not be affected and will continue to operate during this time.

We appreciate your cooperation and coordination as we work to serve the patients who need our services the most. 如果你有问题, please contact Katie Erly, LCSW-C, Supervisor of Emergency Psychiatric 服务 at 410.535.8115.
