LEOMINSTER — In a two-hour meeting with mental health advocates and professionals Wednesday, Dr. Michael Krupa, CEO of Health Partners New England, took input about the design and operations for the Devens-based Health Partners Treatment and Recovery Center, slated to open next September.
The hospital, which will have 104 beds in total, will provide short-term in-patient care for psychiatric and substance-abuse problems. Construction began in August.
The meeting Wednesday night was co-sponsored by The SHINE Initiative and NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) North Central Massachusetts. It drew about 14 people to the Fidelity Bank Community Room, 9 Leominster Connector.
