Virtual Project Presentation: Central State Hospital


October 5, 2021…

To further its commitment to providing safe, effective, efficient, and high-quality behavioral healthcare for its residents, the Commonwealth of Virginia recently approved a new 471,000 SF treatment facility in Petersburg, Virginia. The new facility will provide a total of 252 in-patient beds, includes patient treatment/program areas, and an administrative and support services space.

On October 5th, join your WIH DC community and hear from the project team on how the design and construction of this new treatment center continued to move forward during the pandemic. This virtual project presentation is free to attend and will be led by the Facility Director and CEO of Central State Hospital, as well as members of EYP and Gilbane.

Plus, those that attend will have the chance to win a fall-themed mental health gift from ShopMade in DC, a store solely dedicated to selling Made in DC products!
