CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN ON HOSPITAL IN HARLINGEN
HARLINGEN, TEXAS — Strategic Behavioral Health will begin construction on Palms Behavioral Health, a 72-bed acute behavioral health hospital, on Aug. 28 in Harlingen. The company already operates a behavioral health hospital in College Station and in other locations around the country. The hospital is expected to bring about 200 new jobs to the area, part of metro Brownsville in far south Texas. The hospital will employ psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and nurses treating patients with depression, anxiety, grief and personal crisis situations. The 52,000-square-foot hospital will serve all ages. It is expected to open in late 2015 at a cost of $12 million.
