Psychiatric Pavilion at Williamsburg Place Increases Bed Number to 57

8/1/10 (Williamsburg, Virginia) – Diamond Healthcare Corporation is pleased to announce that the Commonwealth of Virginia has approved a Certificate of Public Need (COPN) for an additional 17 psychiatric beds to be added to the already approved 40-bed Psychiatric Pavilion at Williamsburg Place in Williamsburg, Virginia.

“Increasing the number of available beds in the new Psychiatric Pavilion to 57 allows us to better meet the projected regional growth in the older adult population and will help ease the already stressed services offered by the local community services boards,” said George K. White, President, Diamond Healthcare Corporation.

The groundbreaking for the new Psychiatric Pavilion on the campus of Williamsburg Place took place July 8, 2010. The pavilion will serve adults, older adults and impaired professionals with acute psychiatric illness including those individuals with dual–diagnoses. The Pavilion will help meet a community need for inpatient psychiatric care, while also addressing a national need for psychiatric services for physicians, dentists, nurses and other professionals in need of care.

Diamond has engaged Guernsey Tingle as architects for the Pavilion design and Henderson Construction as the primary contractor. The facility is projected to open in late 2011 and would bring more than 75 new jobs to the Williamsburg area.
