Orlando Health and Acadia Healthcare have commenced construction on a new behavioural health hospital, designed to significantly improve mental health services in the Orlando area in the US.

The groundbreaking ceremony took place at the site of the future facility, located at 1452 S. Orange Blossom Trail in Apopka, Florida.

This joint venture is set to open next year and will serve as a centre of excellence within the Orlando Health system.

The 144-bed hospital will offer a wide range of inpatient and intensive outpatient treatments for individuals of all ages experiencing acute mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and co-occurring ailments.

Orlando Health president and CEO David Strong said: “We are very pleased to expand the inpatient and intensive outpatient capacity for behavioural healthcare and broaden these essential programmes.”

Berglund Construction is serving as the general contractor for the project while Stengel Hill is the architect.

Upon completion, Orlando Health plans to relocate all inpatient behavioural health services from its South Seminole Hospital Campus to the new facility.

Acadia Healthcare CEO Chris Hunter said: “This hospital will expand Orlando Health’s existing capabilities and provide greater access to life-saving behavioural health services.

“We are so proud to be affiliated with Orlando Health, and we look forward to the opportunity to work together to address a vital and growing need in central Florida. This hospital will extend Orlando Health’s legacy of providing quality behavioral health services to their patients.”

Last month, Acadia Healthcare entered into a joint venture with Ascension Seton to enhance behavioural health services in Austin, US, and neighbouring areas of Texas.  

The alliance plans to strengthen the present operations of Acadia at Cross Creek Hospital and increase the number of licensed inpatient behavioural beds.
