Pima County Psychiatric Hospital

The Pima County Psychiatric Hospital is a two-structure campus that consists of a Behavioral Health Pavilion and a Crisis Response Center. Designed by CannonDesign and constructed by DPR, the project has been awarded multiple honors by the AIA, Society of American Registered Architects and ENR.

The Behavioral Health Pavilion totals 136,000 square feet over  3-stories and houses 100-beds in an acute care facility. Features include an expanded emergency room for the hospital, a Pima County Superior Court courtroom for mental-health hearings, an outpatient psychiatric clinic, and two helipads.

The Crisis Response Center is a 67,000 square foot, 2-story structure with an entrance for first-responders like Police and paramedics through a secure sally port. Behavioral-health crisis triage and assessment and stabilization areas are offered for both adults and children along with a 15-unit adult area where patients can stay for up to five days. A call center for a 24-hour community mental-health crisis line is also on site.
