The AAMC Mental Health Hospital would house 16 beds and offer in-patient and out-patient treatment for an array of mental health conditions. It would be a freestanding unit next to the Pathways alcohol and drug treatment facility on Riva Road. The project would comprise 56,236 square feet on four levels and cost about $25 million.

Commissioner Cassandra B.Y. Tomarchio reviewed the application for a “certificate of need,” which the hospital submitted in March 2016, and recommended the full commission approve it with one condition.
