The StoneSprings Hospital Center has commenced construction on new behavioural health facilities in Dulles, Virginia, the US.

The behavioural health centre will have a 17-bed inpatient ward and an outpatient clinic for the residents of Dulles, which are due to be unveiled in the fall, reported a news release.

According to the Hospital Center, the space where the new behavioural health unit is being constructed is just a makeover of a space that was already there. The entire facility will occupy about 9,176 ft2 and will help treat residents suffering from mental illness, emotional disorders and substance abuse.

StoneSprings Hospital behavioural health services executive director Cynthia Benbow said: “I am very excited to begin networking with local businesses and community organisations in identifying the mental health needs in our community and throughout Loudoun County. We are dedicated to helping our patients find their path to recovery through individual therapy, group counselling, medication management and other evidenced based treatment methods.”

The new behavioural health unit will be providing 25 new jobs in the form of psychiatrists, social workers, nurses and counsellors.

StoneSprings Hospital CEO Nathan Vooys said: “There is a demonstrated and growing need for additional mental health services in our community. Benbow will work closely with our sister facility, Dominion Hospital, to expand these services throughout Northern Virginia. These new inpatient and outpatient services will enable patients to receive treatment close to home and near the support of family and friends.”
