Detroit Gets $20 Million Mental Healthcare Investment

DETROIT — State and local government officials plan today to celebrate a $20 million investment in Detroit and Michigan mental healthcare by Nashville-based Behavioral Centers of America, with an invitation only event at StoneCrest Center at 15000 Gratiot Ave., Detroit.

Completely rebuilt-to-new-standards units for adults and youth, along with a totally renovated geriatrics unit will be dedicated and open for a unique “one-time” public viewing Tuesday, Oct. 23 from 1:30  to 7:00 p.m. with tours, refreshments and information on mental healthcare services. Patient privacy laws and respect will prevent the new hotel-like designs from public view in the future.

BCA is already about halfway through the $20 million, three-phase investment in Detroit turning the bankrupt Saratoga Hospital into a major regional mental health asset with what the company says are new models of diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care through its national commitment to the single specialty of psychiatric healthcare.

StoneCrest is a 90-bed inpatient psychiatric hospital licensed by the State of Michigan and part of the Behavioral Centers of America network in the forefront of developing new models of diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care that is redefining how mental health care is delivered.
