New renderings show light, open space at the Behavioral Health Teaching Facility

Department news | September 29, 2022

We are making good progress on the construction of the new Behavioral Health Teaching Facility at the University of Washington Medical Center-Northwest campus. The exterior façade of the building is underway with the goal of fully enclosing the building by the end of November. The building will ultimately support a full continuum of clinical services ranging from medication management and psychotherapies to state-of-the art neuromodulation treatments for adult and geriatric patients and patients who have psychiatric, medical, and surgical problems. The building will also become the new home for our residency education team and house interdisciplinary training and workforce development programs that are focused on preparing and supporting the next generation of behavioral health providers for Washington State. The BHTF is expected to open its doors in 2024. Watch construction live
