The Hawaii Department of Health plans to build a new $140-million Hawaii State Hospital inpatient psychiatric facility in Kaneohe, HI. The 144-bed facility will have 16-foot high security walls and enclosed courtyards in an effort to improve security.
The new 170,000-square-foot psychiatric facility will be built on the upper campus of the state hospital. The multi-story building will replace the Goddard building, which was demolished in 2016 at the 91-acre campus.
Hensel Phelps was selected to build the project. The design-build will incorporate clinical best practices into the physical design of the new building, to create a modern therapeutic environment for the growing number of forensic patients who are admitted to the hospital by court orders.
Construction is scheduled to begin this summer, with completion anticipated in 2021.
