DEVENS — The shortage of Central Massachusetts mental-health treatment options might soon get a shot in the arm.
Dr. Michael Krupa, CEO of Health Partners New England, a Winchester-based psychiatric services management organization, met with Devens residents Wednesday night to outline his proposed New England Recovery Center, a private 86- to 110-bed for-profit hospital that would treat both psychiatric and substance-abuse patients.
The location at 85 Patton Road is 7.6 acres in size. The proposed building would be about 84,000 square feet, with two floors. It would employ 170 to 200 people.
