$62M children's behavioral health center to be built in Michigan

Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services and Helen DeVos Children's Hospital, both based in Grand Rapids, Mich., have partnered to build a new, $62 million children's mental health facility in the city, MLive reported July 21.

The Pediatric Behavioral Health Center of Excellence will feature 88 inpatient psychiatric beds, a psychiatric urgent care center, an eating disorder facility, and specialty clinics for depression and autism spectrum disorder. 

"For too long, we have lived with not enough mental health care for kids in Michigan," Mark Eastburg, PhD, president and CEO of Pine Rest, said July 21 at the Pine Rest campus. "That begins to change right now."

The center has already been awarded $38 million from the state, but still needs $24 million, which it plans to earn through fundraising.
