Construction for a new behavioral health hospital in Battle Creek is underway to address the growing need for accessible, quality mental health services in southwest Michigan.
Bronson Healthcare and Tennessee-based Acadia Healthcare held a virtual groundbreaking Wednesday, Nov. 17, for Bronson Behavioral Health Hospital, a 96-bed inpatient treatment facility on a 25-acre site at Glenn Cross Road and M-66 in Battle Creek.
Construction is expected to be complete in early 2023.
“We are very pleased to announce that construction is underway for Bronson Behavioral Health Hospital,” said Bill Manns, president and CEO of Bronson Healthcare. “Bronson has a longstanding commitment to advancing the health of the communities we serve, and we are proud to make this investment to expand behavioral health offerings in our region.”
The hospital will provide inpatient services for adult patients experiencing anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.
“We’re so excited to have an opportunity to introduce the community to this new hospital,” said Debbie Osteen, CEO of Acadia Healthcare. “This new hospital will be state of the art and provide the hope and healing that residents of southwest Michigan need when dealing with complex behavioral health issues.”
