PLAINFIELD, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — A new hospital specializing in addiction and psychiatric services has opened in Hendricks County. New York-based US HealthVest says Hendricks Behavioral Hospital is now serving patients in partnership with Hendricks Regional Health and has also created more than 200 jobs.

US HealthVest says the hospital is part of an effort to meet a growing need for behavioral health services in Indiana. The hospital is located on the Hendricks Regional Health campus in Plainfield and provides addiction and behavioral health treatment services, as well as psychiatric services, including youth, adult, women’s and geriatric programs.

“The demand for behavioral health and addiction treatment services is at an unprecedented level across Indiana and the nation,” Kevin Speer, chief executive officer of Hendricks Regional Health, said in a news release. “Since I began my role eight years ago, helping to bring a solution to west central Indiana that would bridge this gap has been a priority. This new hospital will make an immediate and positive impact within our community.”

The 70,000-square-foot hospital features amenities such as activity rooms, therapy spaces, indoor and outdoor recreational activity spaces and a dining area.

Financial details of the investment into the hospital were not disclosed.
