West Allis, Wis. – Sept. 17, 2021 – This fall, Granite Hills Hospital, a 120-bed behavioral health facility that will offer high-quality in-patient and out-patient care, will open its doors and begin serving the greater Milwaukee community. Yesterday, Sept. 16, the new hospital was commemorated by a ribbon cutting ceremony, remarks from healthcare and community leaders, and tours of the facility.

Owned and operated by Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS), the facility will initially offer services for adults and will add further services in a phased approach over the coming months. With a wide range of treatment options for patients, the mission of Granite Hills Hospital is to provide outcome-focused behavioral healthcare for those in need.

When fully operational in 2022, the new facility will feature a variety of services from a multi-faceted team of professionals including:

  • The collaboration of multidisciplinary teams including psychiatrists, internal medicine physicians, specialists, certified clinical pharmacists, social workers, psychologists, therapists and other clinical support staff;
  • An integrated assessment and referral center;
  • Substance use disorder treatment for those who are also receiving care for a mental health diagnosis;
  • A continued commitment to highly specialized academic training programs; and
  • Enhanced and expanded intensive day programs and outpatient care for adults and adolescents.

“I couldn’t be happier to officially open the doors of this incredible new facility and begin serving the Milwaukee community,” said Granite Hills Hospital CEO Jennifer Bergersen. “Our team will provide a safe, quality experience for those in our community who deserve excellent behavioral healthcare. I’m proud of the work we’ve done to get to this point and am looking forward to continued partnership with community members and organizations to ensure the behavioral health needs of Milwaukee residents are met.”
