On the heels of Governor Gavin Newsom's announcement to award $480.5 million in grants to improve California's behavioral health infrastructure for children and youth, Gateways Hospital and Mental Health Center announced that it will receive $19.2 million of the grant funding to expand behavioral and mental health services for adolescents at its facilities at its Echo Park hospital campus. The expansion will make Gateways Hospital the largest provider of acute adolescent mental health and substance use disorder in Los Angeles County. 

The 13,000-square-foot expansion project will add 37 new adolescent beds to the existing 27 and increase the total number of adolescent patients served from 300 to 445 per year at the main Gateways Hospital and Mental Health Center campus. The planned facility will offer patients multi-faceted treatment modalities – including drug and alcohol counseling, group counseling and peer support, medical monitoring, and support from dietitians for patients with eating disorders – alongside traditional mental health care.
