Groundbreaking set for Behavioral Health Teaching Facility

Department news | September 30, 2021

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Behavioral Health Teaching Facility at UWMC-Northwest will take place October 15, 2021 from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM in a hybrid event. The new facility will offer a one-of-a-kind fully integrated welcoming and healing environment to individuals struggling with serious physical and behavioral health problems. The building will support a full continuum of clinical services ranging from effective medication management and psychotherapies to state-of-the-art neuromodulation treatments as well as medical and surgical care for individuals with medical and behavioral health disorders. The building will also become the home for our state-wide telepsychiatry consultation program and an interdisciplinary training and workforce development program that is focused on preparing and supporting the next generation of behavioral health providers for Washington State.

Construction activities in the upcoming month include the excavation and preparation of the building site to prepare for the main structure at the end of October. You can watch follow- the continued progress on this project in a live video feed.
