After a much needed dry period and under a beautiful blue sky, representatives from Erlanger, Acadia, Chattanooga, and Hamilton County finally broke ground for Erlanger’s new Behavioral Health Hospital on May 8.
This 88-bed hospital is a joint effort between Erlanger and Acadia Healthcare, which owns the nation’s largest network of mental health facilities.
The two-story, 69,000-square foot facility is being built on the corner of North Holtzclaw and Citico Avenues. It will include 24 beds for geriatric patients, 24 for adults, 18 for children and adolescents, and 22 for substance abuse patients. This is a much-needed treatment center that has received overwhelming support from the community.
