“New mental-health ward slated for Sacred Heart”

http://www.mcall.com/news/local/mc-allentown-sacred-heart-20100610,0,3445877.story?track=rss&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+morningcall%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Fallentown+%28Allentown+News%29

The nightmarishly long link above will take you to a full artical on the morning Call website that discusses a new treatment unit being opend at Sacred Heart Hospital in response to the closing of Allentown State Hospital.  The unit will be able to admit folks for upto 180 days according to the article so it will be a longer term unit but smaller in size then Allentown State Hospital.

I do appollogize for the link if it were my work I would have made it MUCH shorter and more humane, but it is the work of the folks at Morning Call.

The above link will take you to what I feel is probably a letter to the editor type piece, but I can’t say for sure, it is very short in length, but it does raise an interesting point about the number of calls heard on police radios with regards to folks with mental illnesses
