Construction underway on behavioral health facility in Greenville
ECU Health and Acadia Healthcare have started construction on a 144-bed behavioral health hospital in Greenville.
The hospital is expected to open in Spring 2025, about a mile from ECU Health Medical Center, and it will offer inpatient and outpatient treatment for adults, seniors, children and teens who struggle with mental health disorders.
North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Sec. Kody H. Kinsley said too many people, including children, in North Carolina get stuck in emergency departments when they urgently need short-term and high-quality behavioral health care, and the new hospital will make behavioral health services easier to access.
It will also be a teaching hospital for psychiatry, social work, nursing and other behavioral health professionals.
