New Behavioral Health Center Worth US $30 million to be built in USA


A behavioral health facility will be built in southwest Louisiana, USA, as a result of a partnership between Ochsner Lafayette General and Oceans Healthcare.


The upcoming facility, which will be known as "Ochsner Behavioral Health Acadiana," is scheduled to open in late 2024 and has a 120-bed capacity.

The newly constructed facility will offer outpatient therapy alternatives in addition to inpatient care for adolescents, adults, and geriatric patients.

A total of $30 million is expected to be invested in the project by the two partners. Oceans Healthcare will be in charge of development.

The proposed center's location is still being finalized, although preliminary site selection has already begun.

Construction of the planned facility would significantly improve access to services, establish the largest behavioral health center in the area, and meet the urgent demand for compassionate, all-encompassing care for those with co-occurring mental health conditions and drug use disorders.
