The first and only Macomb County-based facility of its type, McLaren Macomb Senior Behavioral Health Center in Shelby Township recently admitted its milestone 100th patient.
Opened in September 2021, the 100th patient was admitted on April 27, 2022.
“Launching in the midst of the pandemic, nationwide staffing challenges and encountering a few obstacles along the way, reaching 100 patients this quickly really demonstrates the need for behavioral health care in the county,” said Theresa Chapman, director of the McLaren Macomb Senior Behavioral Health Center. “We would not have achieved this without the dedication and compassion displayed by our whole team.”
The new 23-bed inpatient facility is designed to meet the needs of adults 65 and older who are in need of treatment for increased anxiety, prolonged emotional issues after a major life event, behavioral disturbances, depression with suicidal thoughts, hallucinations and delusional thoughts, among other behavioral health needs.
