CHS Behavioral Health Center Breaks Ground

On April 12, 2013, Carolinas HealthCare System broke ground of CMC – Davidson, a $36 million behavioral-health campus in northern Mecklenburg County. The facility will include a 66-bed, 67,280 square foot inpatient hospital and a 10,000 square foot medical office building for outpatient care. Plans call for 155 full time employees to be hired, including physicians, psychologists and therapists. The hospital is designed to create a safe, therapeutic setting where patients can receive state-of-the-art treatment for acute mood and thought disorders. Large activity and living areas will open to self-contained landscaped courtyards for outdoor recreation in a private, secure environment. The facility will help meet a growing need for inpatient behavioral-health services in the Charlotte region.
