Architectural DesignBronx Mental Health Redevelopment Projects (Bronx, NY)
A major redevelopment of the Bronx Psychiatric Center campus is underway. The goal is to provide state-of-the-art mental health facilities on a consolidated 35-acre portion of the currently much larger campus. Six new buildings will replace functioning facilities on the site that must remain occupied and operational until their replacements are built. STV is providing design services for a new four-story 156-bed adult behavioral health care facility as well as for all site work and site utilities to serve the new campus. The patient profile will differ for the new facility, with consumers having shorter stays and more acuity. The new facility will provide a normative, more residential environment that will support the treatment modality using a "treatment mall" approach with centralized treatment, educational, dining, visiting and recreational facilities.
