Penn Highlands Healthcare (DuBois, Pa.) is planning to update the behavioral health hospital at Penn Highlands DuBois in DuBois.

The project will include the addition of a psychiatric urgent care center for children and adolescents, an eight-bed high-acuity unit for patients requiring specialized care before being transitioned to the regular adult unit, and an expanded sub-acute unit for at-risk children and adolescents. The project will expand the adult inpatient unit by 14 beds.

The project is expected to be completed in 2022.
