Houston will be home to the nation’s largest psychiatric hospital in 2021 – By Shelby Stewart (Houston Chronicle) / Oct 13 2020
The UTHealth Behavioral Sciences Center will be making history in Houston.
The facility will be the first public mental health hospital constructed in more than three decades, and will be the largest of its kind in the United States.
UTHealth enlisted the help of architecture firm Perkins and Will to design the mental health facility near the Texas Medical Center.
The future building will “consist of two buildings connected by a glazed bridge, surrounded by a tranquil green space,” as reported by Jillian Goltzman at Innovation Map.
