Wednesday, Colorado Springs' latest psychiatric hospital will be opened to the public for tours.
Please join us for Peak View Behavioral Health’s new 92-bed psychiatric hospital open house on Wednesday, June 27. This 10-hour event will give the community an opportunity to see the hospital, learn about our programs and meet our team. Feel free to encourage any colleagues who may be interested to attend as well.
The facility is located at 7353 Sisters Grove out by St. Francis Medical Center, at the corner of Woodmen Road and Powers Boulevard.
The public is invited to show up starting at 10 a.m.
From a press statement:
“We wanted to give the community professionals an opportunity to walk through the hospital, see how therapeutic and non-institutional the environment is, and ask our team any questions they might have about the facility specifically, or behavioral healthcare in general,” Peak View Behavioral Health CEO Gary Miller said.
The new 56,000 square foot hospital will have 92 beds and offer several program options to serve the behavioral health needs of individuals throughout and beyond the Front Range. Initial start-up will include services for adults 18 years of age and older, including geriatric patients. PVBH plans to also treat children and adolescents at the new facility in the near future.
“This is a huge undertaking and we want to make sure we grow at an appropriate pace for both the patients and our staff,” Peak View Chief Operation Officer Will Adams said. The hospital anticipates adding more than 100 new employees throughout 2012 and an additional 100 in 2013
