Signature Healthcare Services LLC will break ground on the Georgetown Behavioral Health Institute on June 12.
"We are thrilled to be a part of the community, and our commitment is to our patients and the community we serve," Executive Vice President Blair Stam said.
The hospital will be located on 6 acres at 3101 S. Austin Ave. and is scheduled to open in spring 2014, adding an estimated 300 jobs. The facility will be 73,500 square feet in size with 118 beds and will offer inpatient and outpatient behavioral health care for adolescents, adults, seniors and active military members and veterans.
Director of Corporate Contracting Kathie Green said that veterans and military service members can seek care for issues including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder through partial services and intensive outpatient care.
The Georgetown location will be Signature Healthcare Services' second-largest facility, said Shelley Plemons, vice president of business development. The company also has locations in Las Vegas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.
