Children’s Health announced that Children’s Health will initiate and create an approximately 100-bed inpatient unit at the new State Psychiatric Hospital for children and adolescents. The adult hospital is being developed through a partnership between UT Southwestern Medical Center and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). The pediatric unit is in addition to 200 adult beds at the new state hospital, which is currently in the planning stages of design and construction and expected to open in fall 2025 with the pediatric addition scheduled to open in early 2026. 

“This donation is a key part of our comprehensive strategy and ongoing commitment to expand access to pediatric and adolescent behavioral health services in North Texas,” says Lindsey Tyra, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer at Children’s Health. “We know that addressing this growing pediatric mental health crisis requires a concerted, coordinated response from resources and experts across our community. In collaboration with UT Southwestern through our joint pediatric enterprise, we are building a sweeping and forward-looking approach to this escalating problem that will also be part of a larger statewide system.”
