Santa Cruz County Advances Plan for Mental Health Center
On Tuesday, the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to approve a project to build a new $12 million mental health center, which will replace the behavioral health services currently provided by Dominican Hospital. The county-owned, 16,000-square-foot facility will include 16 beds, and an admissions and evaluation area. Dominican Hospital will contribute $5 million toward the project as part of an effort to terminate a contract with the county for behavioral health services.
