Clarion Psychiatric Center Raises Final Beam to Commemorate Expansion

Staff PhotoClarion Psychiatric Center (CPC) held a beam raising ceremony on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 to celebrate its 36-bed expansion project. The ceremony took place at Two Hospital Drive, Clarion, Pennsylvania. Staff and community stakeholders were able to sign their names to the beam and be a part of the new structure. CPC’s slogan is embedded on the beam in bold letters “We Treat our Patients Like Family.”

“At CPC we provide each of our patients with the care we would expect for ourselves or our loved ones.” said CEO Michael Post, FACHE. “The responsibility of providing superior care is something we take very seriously. It is why we hold ourselves to the highest standards of quality, accountability, and service excellence, to ensure we are delivering the most effective care available today.”

The expansion will provide additional beds to serve and care for children, adolescents and adults with acute psychiatric symptoms. The beam raising ceremony marked the construction of the 36-bed expansion of the existing 76-bed facility. Upon completion, the facility will have a total of 112 beds as well as a new conference center for Mental Health trainings for treatment providers in the region. The expansion project will add 72 employees to CPC’s existing 150-person staff.
Improving access to behavioral health services is an identified community need and top priority for CPC. The expansion will help address the demand for mental health services in Clarion and the surrounding counties.

The expansion project was designed by Johnson Johnson Crabtree Architects, P.C with Deangelis Diamond as the construction manager. The total project cost will be $12 million and is expected to be completed in the Fall of 2018.

Clarion Psychiatric Center has been providing inpatient psychiatric treatment for the past 30 years at their Monroe Township location. The inpatient units provide care to patients from over 50 counties in Pennsylvania and constantly strives to put patients first while adhering to the highest clinical performance standards.

Clarion Psychiatric Center has been named a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® for Hospital-Based Inpatient Psych. This coveted award recognizes excellence in performance on accountability measures that are linked to improving the quality of care for the patients served.

Business of the Year: Economic Development

The Clarion Psychiatric Center was awarded the 2018 Business of the Year-Economic Development Award.

The center has been a major regional resource for children, adolescents, adults, and the Clarion area community for 30 years.

In 2018, they expanded on that success with a $12 million expansion that added 36 new acute inpatient beds, now serving up to 112 people at any given time. The new expansion also called for an expanded workforce. At full capacity, the facility expansion will add up to 70 new employees, bringing the total employees to 225 people. The new addition increases the capability of helping Clarion County residents and includes a conference center for mental health training for treatment providers in the region.

The business showed its understanding of the need to improve upon the local economy by hiring local construction companies and contractors for as much of their expansion project as possible, including Rankins Excavating, the EADS Group, M&B Services, Hager Paving, and Mobilcom.
