"X. Out of this appropriation, $6,200,000 the second year from the general fund shall be provided to contract with Chesapeake Regional Healthcare to establish a 20-bed acute, inpatient psychiatric unit."


(This amendment provides $6.2 million the second year from the general fund to build a 20-bed acute, inpatient psychiatric unit by Chesapeake Regional Healthcare. This facility is the only locally-owned hospital in the Commonwealth. Funding would be used for architectural and engineering fees, site preparation costs, equipment and furnishings and roughly $4.2 million for construction. These additional beds would provide critically needed acute psychiatric services in Chesapeake and the surrounding localities.)
