On the Cover

In 2015, when John Fox moved from Georgia-based Emory Healthcare to become president and CEO of Beaumont Health in Michigan, he had his hands full integrating the eight hospitals, 145 outpatient sites, and 33,000 employees of the Beaumont, Oakwood, and Botsford systems that had recently merged in a $3.8 billion deal.

“We had a ton of work to do with the existing portfolio before we took on anything new,” Fox said.
However, at one of the first meetings he attended with several Michigan health care groups, mental health was the topic of discussion and a major frustration in the room.

“We were all suffering from the same issue,” he said. “We had ERs jammed with people who had mental health disorders. We had inadequate resources to treat them or to place them in appropriate care.”

What evolved from Beaumont’s follow-up research was a decision last fall to build a new 150-bed, free-standing psychiatric hospital on eight acres in Dearborn. The $45 million facility, targeted for completion by the end of 2020, will be built in partnership with Universal Health Services — one of the largest U.S. mental health providers.

It addresses a critical need in southeast Michigan, says Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, representing the 12th District of Michigan in the U.S. House of Representatives, who joined Fox in announcing the new hospital.
