Touring the KU behavioral health campus on Strawberry Hill

Tours were held today for the new University of Kansas Health System behavioral health facility on Strawberry Hill in downtown Kansas City, Kansas. The new 47-bed inpatient mental and behavioral health unit is in the former EPA building at 5th and Minnesota Avenue. Patients are scheduled to start arriving on Sept. 4. Half of the building will be used to house patients, while the other half will be administrative programs and offices. Hundreds of employees could be added to downtown Kansas City, Kansas.
