Update: UW Medicine Behavioral Health Teaching Facility

Department news | April 21, 2022

Construction activities slowed the last few months on the new UW Medicine Behavioral Health Teaching Facility (BHTF) on the UW Medical Center-Northwest campus due to a labor strike that prevented concrete deliveries in King County. Concrete deliveries have resumed and foundation work is once again underway. The building will support a full continuum of clinical services ranging from medication management and psychotherapies to state-of-the art neuromodulation treatments (see below) for adult and geriatric patients and patients who have a combination of medical, surgical, and psychiatric problems. The building will also house an interdisciplinary training and workforce development program that is 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.
