Providers are adding more psychiatric hospitals, beds and residential treatment space across Kentucky.
Across the nation and the commonwealth, health-care providers are investing in behavioral care facilities as the marketplace increasingly recognizes the value of mental health services. Kentucky’s newest hospital is the 197-bed SUN Behavioral Health facility in Erlanger, a $40 million project initiated by St. Elizabeth Healthcare.
The nation’s newest behavioral health hospital near I-75 in Northern Kentucky reflects the fact that more and more Kentucky residents – including both employers and employees – are prioritizing better mental health. Expanding capacity and access to meet rising demand for behavioral health services has become a national trend.
