Mercy and Catholic Health Partners have announced a massive $21 million project that will benefit the community, with a new behavioral health institute to be built at St. Charles Hospital.
The multimillion dollar plan includes building a new, two-story complex right next to St. Charles in Oregon. When the facility opens, it will become a centralized location for in-patient and out-patient services with 90 beds as part of a hospitalization program.
Dr. Donna Markham, president of Behavioral Health Institute for CHP, says there's a strong connection between mental and physical health and this project is about their mission to treat the whole person: mind, body and spirit.
"So here in Lucas County and the Toledo market, we're trying to look at ways that we can expand services to treat people who are really in desperate need for help, and to give them an environment of care that is conducive to the healing process," said Markham.
"What we're trying to develop is a comprehensive behavioral health center of excellence, which is part of our effort to make sure we transform the way we deliver care," explained Dr. Imran Andrabi, Mercy's COO.
Construction is expected to start when weather allows and wrap up early next year.
