The project will provide Rio Vista Behavioral Health with a new two-story, 40-bed unit and outdoor recreation space encompassing 38,000 square feet, and a new one-story outpatient center with additional parking and flatwork encompassing 14,000 square feet.
“We’re pleased to break ground on a project that will help Rio Vista build on the significant impact it’s made on the community,” said Bob Lemke, Vice President of Operations with AP Gulf States. “AP has a long and reputable history of managing health care projects across Texas, and we’re humbled to partner with Acadia and Rio Vista to expand the breadth of psychiatric and addiction treatment services to the people of El Paso.”
Rio Vista Behavioral Health offers comprehensive care for men, women, and children struggling with mental health and substance abuse concerns. The facility provides inpatient services tailored to each patients’ individual needs on their path to recovery. Recently, the treatment facility launched remote services to continue serving patients throughout the pandemic and opened a 20-bed S.T.A.R. Military and Veteran's Unit.
Stengel Hill Architects designed the new addition. Construction on the expansion project will begin in January 2022 and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2023.
