Sierra Tucson, an internationally renowned leader in behavioral and mental health care, is underway with steel framing of its 30,895-square-foot new Behavioral Health Inpatient Lodge.

Designed to enhance the overall treatment experience for residents, the lodge will be adding 44 licensed beds, integrative therapy rooms, a new pharmacy center, expanded facilities for individualized treatment and a dedicated admission center. 

“It is exciting to see the progress and watch our vision of helping even more people come to life,” said Jaime Vinck, MC, LPC, NCC, CEIP, chief executive officer of Sierra Tucson.

The inpatient wings are currently being framed, with the hallways and patient bedrooms are starting to take form. Construction of the roof structure will begin later this week.

The beautifully-designed campus is nestled in the foothills of Tucson on 160 acres. With spectacular views of the majestic Santa Catalina Mountains and the serene natural desert backdrop, Sierra Tucson provides an ideal natural healing environment in which to pursue a healthy, productive and promising future.
