US-based behavioural healthcare services provider Acadia Healthcare has opened a new acute care behavioural health hospital in Mesa, Arizona, US. 

The opening of the facility, named ‘Agave Ridge Behavioral Hospital’, was marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony, held on 11 April.  

This 100-bed hospital will start admitting patients in the upcoming days, once the final preparations to deliver healthcare services to patients are complete.  

Located on a 12-acre site at 3322 South Ellsworth Road in Mesa, the new facility is designed to meet the increasing demand for accessible behavioural healthcare services in the region. 

It provides access to a full range of inpatient behavioural healthcare services that are tailored for adult, older, and paediatric patients. 

These services include treatment for depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and other acute symptoms of behavioural health disorders.

Construction of the new hospital began in March 2023. It will cater to people from diverse age groups, including adolescents aged between 11 and 17 years, adults over 18 years, and senior adults older than 55 years of age.  

It aims to offer age-appropriate care that addresses patients’ mental, emotional, social, and adult physical needs, facilitating a holistic healing process to treat mental health and substance use disorders. 

Agave Ridge Behavioral Hospital CEO Jennifer Nuñez said: “This new hospital will help to address a critical need for access to behavioural health services that has rippled across our state. It is estimated that Mesa and the surrounding communities have a deficit of more than 800 behavioural health beds.  

“Our hospital’s leadership and staff have worked extremely hard to prepare the hospital for accepting and treating these patients.” 

Acadia CEO Chris Hunter added: “This hospital aligns with Acadia’s purpose to ‘Lead Care with Light,’ providing those throughout the country the access to the resources and compassion they need to heal and recover.” 

Acadia and Tufts Medicine recently commenced construction on a new 144-bed behavioural health hospital in Malden, Massachusetts, US.
