Henry Ford Health and Acadia Healthcare broke ground on a behavioral health treatment and teaching hospital. This new facility will allow Henry Ford Health to deliver innovative care, increase resources and address the growing need for accessible behavioral health services in Metro Detroit and beyond.
The new hospital will be a two-story facility, spanning approximately 120,000 square feet on Henry Ford Health’s West Bloomfield campus, making it a natural extension of the services the health system already provides. While the hospital will initially provide 184 inpatient beds, it will have a 192-bed capacity and the ability to expand further to meet increasing needs. Henry Ford Health will provide inpatient psychiatric services for adults, seniors, adolescents and children. The new facility will be known as Henry Ford Behavioral Health Hospital-West Bloomfield.
Acadia Healthcare, which will operate the hospital, is partnering with Henry Ford Health to develop care delivery models to better integrate physical and mental health services. In addition to providing resources and environment for mental health healing, the hospital will also be built to achieve LEED certification for environmental sustainability.
