FSSA Opens Psychiatric Hospital

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

Indiana Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch joined Family and Social Services Secretary Jennifer Walthall to officially open the NeuroDiagnostic Institute and Advanced Treatment Center in Indianapolis. The state says the $120 million NDI is Indiana's first new state psychiatric hospital in 53 years. The facility will focus on disorders ranging from mental illness and addiction to traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer's disease.

The NDI will advance evaluation and treatment for patients with complex neuropsychiatric illnesses and move them into the most appropriate treatment settings within the community or state mental health system.

“This beautiful, new facility represents our state’s renewed and focused commitment to mental health,” said Dr. Walthall in anews release. “This state-of-the-art hospital will take advantage of the most recent advances in brain research and clinical care to optimize the quality of care and diagnoses for all Hoosiers with severe psychiatric illnesses.”

The staff of the 159-bed facility will  focus on treating brain-based disorders, including:

  • Acute and chronic mental illness
  • Chronic addictions
  • Intellectual and developmental disabilities
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Neuro-degenerative illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease

Patients will be referred to the hospital from community mental health centers, other state psychiatric hospitals and judicial partners. 

The NDI will replace a long-time institution, Larue Carter Memorial Hospital which has served patients since 1952 and is being phased out of operation.

The design and construction team for the NDI included more than 100 companies, led by BSA Lifestructures as project architects and Pepper Construction as construction managers.

The hospital will begin receiving patients in the next few weeks.
