Middleborough, MA – Campanelli Construction of Braintree recently started renovation of the new 63,000sf High Point Hospital in Middleborough. The vacant former Cranberry Specialty Hospital will be converted into a state-of-the-art 72-bed psychiatric hospital.
“Our plan is to renovate a property that has been neglected, vandalized and currently provides no economic value to the Middleborough community. We will add jobs, offer life-changing treatments, and become an active member of the community by providing mental health and substance abuse prevention, education, and treatment services. We welcome the opportunity to work with the town and other organizations to make Middleborough a safer and healthier place to live,” states High Point president & CEO Daniel Mumbauer.
The new location will allow High Point to expand from 16 beds in Plymouth to 72 beds. Jobs will be created for a staff of 200, consisting of physicians, nurses, clinicians, maintenance staff, mental health workers, housekeepers, dietary, and administrative staff.
Construction is expected to be completed by early summer 2015.
Currently, High Point operates inpatient and outpatient programs in Plymouth, Brockton, New Bedford and Taunton.
