Virginia behavioral health hospital construction delayed due to operational costs, supply chain issues

Petersburg, Va.-based Central State Hospital's construction of its new facility has been delayed until 2023, ABC affiliate WRIC reported Oct. 20. 

Construction of the new behavioral health facility has been put off due to supply chain issues, operational costs and rising construction costs due to inflation. 

The project has been years in the making and originally cost $315 million, according to the news outlet. It is unclear how much the hospital will cost to build now. 

The hospital will not be complete until 2026. Final design plans are expected by the end of 2022.

The new facility will have 252 beds and be 471,000 square feet. It will replace the current hospital, which has been in operation since 1885.
