A new mental health care facility is on the way in Waco.
Ocean’s Healthcare broke ground on a new 48-bed hospital on Thursday afternoon.
The company is a behavioral health provider, which will focus on healing and long-term recovery in its new space.
“One of the biggest deciding factors in deciding to build the hospital here was the engagement from the community. At every level, both elected officials, the overall health community and community leaders asked us to look at the area and consider placing a hospital here,” says Stuart Archer, Ocean’s Healthcare CEO.
The building will be on Crosslake Parkway and anticipates the hiring of about 90 staff members. Construction is expected to finish later this year.
