Partners Developing New $25M Behavioral Health Hospital

US HealthVest announced the development of Indianapolis Behavioral Hospital, a new stand-alone behavioral health center that will provide a full continuum of specialized inpatient and outpatient mental care to patients of all ages. The new hospital will be located on the campus of Hendricks Regional Health in Plainfield, Indiana.

“We are excited to work in collaboration with Hendricks Regional Health to bring these vital services to the community,” said Richard Kresch, M.D., President and CEO of US HealthVest.  “Indianapolis Behavioral Hospital will treat the increasing and unmet need for specialized mental health services in the growing Indianapolis area.”

The facility will provide behavioral health and addiction treatment services to all patients, regardless of ability to pay. Comprehensive services will include free 24/7 assessments, inpatient care and intensive outpatient services. A full range of specialized programs will be offered, such as a Women’s Program, a Youth Program, a Co-Occurring Disorders Program, a Geriatric Program and a Psychiatric Intensive Care Program.

“The shortage of mental health services in our community and across the state and nation is at an unprecedented level,” said Hendricks Regional Health President & CEO Kevin Speer. “In Hendricks County alone, mental health and substance abuse were tied as the number two overall health concerns in the most recent Community Health Assessment. This collaboration with US HealthVest helps us bridge the gap for the children, adults and families who need these critical services.”

The project also brings a positive economic impact for Hendricks and surrounding counties. US HealthVest will invest $25 million to construct the 77,000 square-foot facility. The two-story hospital will have open spaces with views of nature, fostering a safe and nurturing environment. Shared amenities will include activity rooms, therapy spaces and a dining area, along with indoor and outdoor recreational spaces. Indianapolis Behavioral Hospital, expected to open in early 2020, will create over 250 new high-quality jobs with full benefits, as well as bring new state and federal funds to the area.
