Medical City McKinney officially unveiled its behavioral health and rehabilitation services pavilion Sept. 2.

The $52 million project brings a new facility to McKinney that provides expanded services for the hospital’s behavioral health and rehabilitation services, which were previously located on the Wysong campus.

“By expanding and moving these services to our main campus, we can meet our community’s needs and provide our behavioral health and inpatient rehabilitation patients with a full continuum of care in one healing location,” said Ernest C. Lynch, the CEO of Medical City McKinney, in a news release. “This expansion further exemplifies our commitment to the care and improvement of human life.”

The opening of the facility concludes the project that was approved in October 2017. It debuts an 80,000 square-foot, two-story pavilion as well as a behavioral health and inpatient rehabilitation institute that includes: 20 inpatient rehabilitation patient rooms, 80 behavioral health patient rooms, leading-edge technology, an outdoor healing garden, design elements focused on natural lighting, and an open floor plan.

Medical City McKinney’s behavioral health services include mental health care for adults and treatment for a wide range of conditions, including depression and anxiety. The hospital’s new rehabilitation institute will provide treatment for strokes, amputations, brain injuries, cardiac rehab, trauma, and more.
