Ground Broken for Rusk State Hospital Replacement Facility

Ground was recently broken for Rusk State Hospital’s replacement facility, located in Rusk, Texas.

The 225,000-square-foot project will replace a 100-year-old behavioral health facility, complete with two 100-bed units, for both maximum and non-maximum-security patients. Ultimately, this increases the existing maximum-security unit capacity by 60 beds. The administration building will also be replaced during this update. In total, the state has allocated $195.6 million for the project.

Overall campus construction is scheduled for completion in 2024—with the administration building opening in late 2021, the maximum-security unit opening in spring 2022 and the non-maximum-security unit opening in late 2024.

The project team includes Robins & Morton, HKS, th+a architects and a+ architecture.
