The Consolidated Campus Project is a $3.8 million campaign to
expand the campus of BHR to include two new buildings and a
vacant lot nearby our current headquarters in Olympia, WA.
One of the buildings has a presence on Martin Way. The
campus expansion will coincide with the development of an
electronic record system to improve our performance and
expand services to include primary care and state of the art
information technology. The vacant lot included in the sale will
give the opportunity for future expansion and/or meet our
parking needs. The expanded campus and new technology
will truly bring a state of the art behavioral and physical
healthcare facility to Thurston County. This addition will bring
the value of our campus to $8,000,000.
Imagine a BHR Campus where individuals dealing with both mental and physical health issues had both
behavioral health and physical health services available to them in one place. A new front door to our campus
would face Martin Way, a main thoroughfare, and be within minutes of Providence St. Peter Hospital and the Evaluation
and Treatment Center.
- The new larger campus will allow BHR to partner with primary care to create a new healthcare reality for
some of the most vulnerable individuals in our community.
- The efficiencies developed by the purchase of electronic health records technology and the consolidation
of all of BHR’s Thurston County operations will streamline operations and allow interoperable communication
between BHR and other health providers, insuring the safety of clients and reducing the cost of healthcare.
- Further, it will allow BHR to contract with insurance carriers that will fill a need for behavioral
services for people of middle income and a broad portion of our community population.
- And finally, the new and expanded services will build sustainability for BHR’s business model.
