DEVENS — The Devens Enterprise Commission will hear a presentation tonight by Dr. Michael Krupa on construction of a 100-bed hospital to serve people with mental illness.
According to a source close to Dr. Krupa, the hospital would be build on Patton Road not far from Red Tail Golf Club.
The need for such a facility is considered great due to the closing of mental health treatment centers throughout the state, including the one located at Burbank Hospital in Fitchburg.
