This ordinance would deappropriate $2,500,000 of Bartlett Regional Hospital (BRH) Fund’s fund balance and appropriate $2,750,000 as funding for BRH’s Crisis Stabilization CIP (B55-080). BRH was unable to purchase the office building located at 3225 Hospital Drive which currently houses a BRH clinical program. BRH’s lease on the clinic space expires in December 2022 and is unlikely to be renewed. To house the clinical program at the hospital campus, BRH is proposing to use this funding to add a floor to the behavioral health facility currently under construction.
Funding for the appropriation would be provided by Bartlett Regional Hospital Fund’s fund balance.
This request was reviewed and approved by the BRH Board at its April 27, 2021 meeting. This request was reviewed by the Public Works and Facilities Committee at its May 10, 2021 meeting.
