Signet Health leadership attended the September 9 ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of the newly constructed McLaren Macomb Senior Behavioral Health Center in Shelby Township, Michigan. This multidisciplinary inpatient complex has 23 beds and is designed to meet the growing community need of behavioral health services for adults 55 and older.
From the hospital’s website: “It has been very encouraging to see an emphasis placed on behavioral health over the past several years, and the de-stigmatization of those patients in need of care,” said Tom Brisse, McLaren Macomb president and CEO. “Launching a new service is always exciting, especially one that will meet a growing community need and have such a positive impact on so many families. We are confident this new facility will do just that.”
Construction of the McLaren Macomb Senior Behavioral Health Center began in the fall of 2020 and represents an $8 million investment by the hospital to the community and its senior citizens.
The new 23-bed inpatient facility is designed to meet the needs of adults 55 and older who are in need of treatment for increased anxiety, prolonged emotional issues after a major life event, behavioral disturbances, depression with suicidal thoughts, hallucinations and delusional thoughts, among other behavioral health needs.
