The Hospital is now able to serve a total of 40 patients ages 7-17. In addition to the two units, the wing features several new offices, rooms for admissions, consult and visitation, two large programming areas with outdoor courtyards for recreation, a gymnasium, dining room, nursing station, and multiple areas specifically designed for individual, group and family therapy. The Hospital lobby was also remodeled allowing increased space and an additional parking lot was constructed.
