Last Friday (10.30.15), we attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new County of Los Angeles, Arcadia Mental Health Center. Michael D. Antonovich, LA County Supervisor - 5th District, was on hand to cut the ribbon and thank all involved.

Congratulations to the whole team, including and most importantly our design build partner Abbott Construction. SWA's team was led by Daniel Bise, AIA, Principal. This project looks great and was also ON TIME and well BELOW BUDGET - GREAT WORK.

Summary:

The new facility is approximately 12,000 square feet and houses the Full Services Partnership Program, Adult and Older Adult Field Capable Clinical Services Programs, Early Recovery Wellness Program, staff psychiatrists, and support staff. The replacement facility allows the Department of Mental Health to provide all these program functions that were being performed in multiple locations in a single location. The facility includes a waiting area, reception area, financial screening area, business offices, conference room, staff lounge and patio, seven therapy rooms, one group therapy room, private sound proof offices for all clinicians and psychiatrists, and an outdoor court yard. The new facility is more efficiently laid out to accommodate the various functions, and designed to meet patient privacy standards.
