Cincinnati Children’s recently broke ground on a new $99-million inpatient mental health facility in College Hill, Ohio.
The new five-story facility will replace the current inpatient building on the College Hill campus. Encompassing 160,000 square feet, the facility will be 68% larger than the current one. The new building will include private rooms for all inpatients, which will enable families to spend more time on the units and even stay overnight with their child.
There will be dedicated spaces for group therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and recreational therapy. The facility will also be the new home for expanded services for patients with neurodevelopment disorders. College Hill is part of a mental health system of care that seeks to identify and prevent more severe diseases.
The project team includes GBBN and Messer Construction.
The new building is scheduled to open in late 2023.
