We will open the Epstein Center for Behavioral Health on our Salem campus in November, 2019. The 120 bed facility will provide psychiatric and behavioral health services for children, adolescents, adults and seniors, and will integrate addiction treatment with inpatient and outpatient psychiatry, mental health services, and further development of community-based programs. The Center will add 24 new beds to the region for psychiatry and behavioral health care. Referrals and conditions treated
