Funds Support Expanding Behavioral Health Capacity in the North Sound Region
Everett, Wash., May 10, 2022 – The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”), in collaboration with Molina Healthcare of Washington, recently presented a $100,000 grant to support Compass Health’s Broadway Campus Redevelopment Project. The grant will help fund construction of a 72,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that will expand community-based behavioral health care services and its workforce in northwest Washington. The grant is a part of The MolinaCares Behavioral Health Initiative to increase access to behavioral health across the state.
“We are honored to support the Broadway Campus Redevelopment Project to help deliver behavioral health care to low-income individuals,” said Dr. Jay Fathi, plan president of Molina Healthcare of Washington. “This project will help expand behavioral health care infrastructure in the North Sound region and provide services and care with the dignity that patients and staff deserve.”
Rates of anxiety and depression among U.S. adults were four times higher last year than in pre-pandemic years. The Broadway Campus Redevelopment Project will help provide community-based care to individuals in need of intensive services to support their behavioral health, establishing a new 16-bed inpatient evaluation and treatment facility, a 16-bed crisis stabilization unit, intensive outpatient care services, and offices for crisis prevention.
“Through this partnership with MolinaCares, the redevelopment of our Broadway Campus will allow us to better address some of our region’s most urgent behavioral health needs,” said Tom Sebastian, president and CEO of Compass Health. “We are excited to see the positive impact this new facility will have on our community, especially for those in need of intensive behavioral health care services.”
The Broadway Campus, which encompasses an entire city block in Everett, is Compass Health’s largest and most comprehensive location. The redeveloped facility is projected to provide 30,000 points of behavioral health service to approximately 1,500 adults each year.
