Palomar Health and Kindred Behavioral Health (KBH) have entered a joint venture partnership to build and operate the new Palomar Behavioral Health Institute. The three-story, 90,000-square-foot facility will include 120 inpatient beds and provide outpatient services. 

Palomar Health has been planning a comprehensive expansion of its behavioral health services, and the construction of a new behavioral health hospital will allow Palomar Health to provide equitable, person-centered services across the continuum, treating the most vulnerable members of the community with dignity and the appropriate level of care.  

This new joint venture between Palomar Health and Kindred expands on a longstanding, 20-year partnership between the organizations. The behavioral health hospital will be located a short distance from the Escondido campus, where a 52-bed inpatient rehabilitation facility was constructed in partnership with Kindred Rehabilitation Services (KRS), also a business unit of LifePoint. KRS and KBH operate more than 30 such joint-venture, specialty hospitals across 18 states.
