Academic and integrated health system Henry Ford Health (Detroit) and behavioral healthcare company Acadia Healthcare (Franklin, Tenn.) broke ground on a 120,000-square-foot behavioral health hospital in West Bloomfield, Mich.

Situated on Henry Ford Health’s West Bloomfield campus, the Henry Ford Behavioral Health Hospital will initially house 184 inpatient beds, with capacity to expand to 192 beds.

The new hospital will provide inpatient psychiatric services for adults, seniors, adolescents, and children. The hospital will also serve as an academic site for behavioral healthcare providers including psychiatry residents, medical students, and nurses.

Scheduled to open in 2023, the hospital will be designed to achieve LEED certification.

The health system plans to consolidate inpatient services from two aging facilities, Henry Ford Kingswood Hospital and Henry Ford Macomb Hospital – Mt. Clemens, to the new location.
