A new Behavioral Health Hospital serving Eastern Washington

Providence Health Care and Universal Health Services (UHS)/Fairfax Behavioral Health are celebrating the next step in their joint venture to build a 100-bed freestanding behavioral health hospital on the Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center campus. Members of the community are invited to a groundbreaking ceremony for the new hospital May 1, 10:30am, at 5th & Browne in Spokane. The new hospital is expected to be ready for patients in the fall of 2018.

Construction of the three-story building will begin immediately. In addition to patient rooms and treatment areas, the design includes a gym, courtyard, kitchen, natural lighting, dedicated parking and ambulance bay.

The hospital will increase both inpatient and outpatient capacity to meet the health care needs of the region while helping to lower the overall cost of care. It will serve adult and pediatric patients needing short-term hospital care for mental health illnesses. It will be well connected with the providers and services available at Providence clinics and hospitals in Spokane and Stevens counties, creating a seamless care experience for patients.

Providence Sacred Heart has been caring for behavioral health patients in the region for more than 45 years. Fairfax, an affiliate of UHS, the nation's largest facility-based provider of behavioral health services, has more than 86 years of experience meeting the behavioral health needs of the residents of the state of Washington.

The Washington State Department of Health approved the Certificate of Need for the two health care providers to move forward with construction on the 100-bed hospital in March 2016. Planning and design work began immediately.

The general contractor is Bouten Construction of Spokane. The architects are NAC and Boulder Architectural Design. Cost of construction is approximately $29 million.
