When the sale closes, College Health will continue providing superior, inpatient behavioral health services for seniors and plans to increase the total licensed beds. College Health has further agreed to maintain the hospital’s commitment to charity care and community benefit services, retain 90% of the current employees, and maintain privileges for current medical staff.
