Bringing hope and healing to the Grand Rapids area in 2025
“With all required regulatory approvals secured for additional inpatient behavioral health beds, we are eager to start construction of the new hospital as expeditiously as possible. Trinity Health has a strong reputation as an anchor in West Michigan and we are thrilled to partner with them in bringing more accessible care to more patients – ultimately improving and saving lives.”
“We look forward to working with UHS to enable the availability of more inpatient behavioral health options in our region. It is a strategic imperative that we prioritize solutions for individuals in crisis presenting to local hospitals, including our Trinity Health emergency departments, as well as other referral sources. The new facility will be a receiving site enabling initiation of appropriate care, faster.”
Caring for the whole patient
The design of the new hospital incorporates today’s modern, innovative, evidence-based care elements that focus on patient safety. Programming will be tailored to individual patient needs, with core psychiatric services and counseling supplemented by enrichment activities such as art therapy, music therapy, pet therapy and outdoor activity.
Universal Health Services & Trinity Health Partnership
A partnership between Trinity Health and Universal Health Services, Southridge Behavioral Hospital will address the growing, currently unmet need for accessible, high-quality behavioral health services in Grand Rapids and surrounding communities.
A growing network in Western Michigan
The new Southridge Behavioral Hospital will seamlessly tie into a growing network of affiliated behavioral health services in the area, including UHS-operated Forest View Hospital and Trinity Health Michigan’s new partnership with Network180 to open a Behavioral Health Crisis Center for the rapid availability of assessment services on a walk-in basis. Further, the new Southridge Behavioral Hospital will provide additional provider and patient choice in the market, specifically at an easily accessible location south of Grand Rapids.
