The 150-bed facility will provide services for children, teens and adults.
"We treat folks for psychiatric issues, behavioral issues, behavioral health issues and problems families are having. We're delighted to be in north central West Virginia, We've been providing understanding, support and treatment since 1955," said Jim Strawn-Highland Hospital Director of Marketing.
