Track:Behavioral Health Practices
Many healthcare systems are contending with patients’ growing unmet behavioral health needs. As greater emphasis is placed on addressing mental health issues, these systems must look for ways to incorporate behavioral health services into existing models. This session will explore the collaborative process between Maricopa Integrated Health Systems and the DLR Group design team as they worked to transform an acute medical care facility into a behavioral health treatment environment. From the technical design aspects to the accelerated timeline to address the unique needs required by behavioral health facilities, presenters will walk the audience through lessons learned and provide practical advice for how other systems might approach their own renovations.
