Fillmore County Hospital's Behavioral Health Pavilion Opens

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Fillmore County Hospital (Fillmore) in Geneva, Neb. held a ribbon cutting and open house on Thursday, August 13, 2015 for their newly constructed $5.4 million, 13,200 square foot behavioral health facility with partner Diamond Healthcare Corporation. This facility is located adjacent to and attached to Fillmore County Hospital and houses a new 10-bed inpatient behavioral health unit, as well as the existing Structured Outpatient Program and Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program currently provided in the hospital. The new 10- bed inpatient program is designed specifically for adults age 55 and over and is expected to meet the increased need from the projected regional growth in the older adult population. Patients may present with symptoms to include behavioral disturbances, severe depression with suicidal thoughts, anxiety, hallucinations and delusions.

“Our strong partnership with Fillmore was critical to making this project a reality,” said William Carpenter, CFO at Diamond. “We all realized the importance of being able to offer additional behavioral health services to the community. The Hospital’s Board of Directors was instrumental in their support and guidance throughout the development of this Pavilion.”
