(This amendment provides appropriation in the second year from the general fund to transform Catawba Hospital. This request is in support of an analysis conducted by the Secretary of Health and Human Resources in cooperation with the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, related to the transformation of the Catawba Hospital campus into a state-of-the-art facility at which a continuum of substance abuse treatment and recovery services, including long-term, short-term, acute, and outpatient services, is provided in addition to the array of behavioral health and other services currently provided to geriatric individuals in need of mental health care. This transformation is to include facilities and programming fostering the growth and development of the Commonwealth's behavioral health workforce.)
