“Our mutual goal in these partnerships is always to provide patients and their loved ones with compassionate and high-quality behavioural health care, services and support.”

Geisinger serves over one million people through its hospitals, health plan, research institute and educational programmes, while Acadia Healthcare operates a network of 250 behavioural healthcare facilities across the US.

Geisinger president and CEO Jaewon Ryu said: “This hospital and partnership will bring increased access and the highest quality behavioural healthcare to patients across northeastern Pennsylvania.

“I want to thank the numerous people from Geisinger, Acadia, local government and the community for their commitment and passion in making our vision a reality today.
