Signature Psychiatric Hospital will double its presence in the Kansas City area through an expansion at Liberty Hospital. The expansion at Liberty Hospital will add 36 beds to Signature’s 36 beds at North Kansas City Hospital, totaling 72 beds for Signature Psychiatric Hospital’s health system.
Lisa St. Aubyn, CEO of both Signature hospitals, stated, “The expansion will add much needed inpatient psychiatric beds to the Northland where patients previously had few options. With mental health and substance use problems reaching crisis levels across the country, we’ve had to re-group and decide what makes sense for our community. For Liberty, it made sense to provide services for adults and senior adults.”
Signature’s new unit at Liberty will provide behavioral health treatment services for adults and senior adults. A specialty senior program, Silver Lining, will help seniors with memory loss, confusion, as well as severe depression, severe anxiety, unresolved grief and loss and mood disorders. Another program, The Changing Pointe, helps adults struggling with substance use issues. Signature plans to expand its outpatient behavioral health services in the Northland for adults, senior adults and adolescents in the future.
Signature’s behavioral health program located at North Kansas City Hospital provides inpatient behavioral health treatment services for adults, and outpatient treatment services for adults and adolescents at 5 locations. The Valor treatment program provides substance use and mental health treatment for active duty military, first responders and veterans.
Through Signature’s partnerships with the two municipal hospitals, support will be provided to emergency patients who need behavioral health services. In turn, the host hospitals will provide laboratory and other services to support Signature.
Signature’s parent company, CenterPointe Behavior Health System (CBHS) also provides inpatient and outpatient treatment services in St. Charles, MO.
