(This amendment restores $700,000 GF to continue operating the Adolescent Unit at Southwestern Virginia Mental Health Institute at 50 percent of its current bed capacity beginning July 1, 2009. From July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008, the average daily census at Marion was 9. To operate at 8 beds, instead of 16, one adolescent at any given time will need to be placed in a private facility. Funding of $2.1 million GF is retained to address the anticipated need for payments at private psychiatric hospitals. The introduced budget proposed the closure of this facility by June 30, 2009.)
