EVERETT, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”), in collaboration with Molina Healthcare of Washington, recently presented a $100,000 grant to support Compass Health’s Broadway campus redevelopment project. The grant will help fund the construction of a 72,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility that will expand community behavioral health care services and its workforce in Northwest Washington.

“We are honored to support the Broadway campus redevelopment project to help provide behavioral health care to low-income individuals,” said Dr. Jay Fathi, plan chairman of Washington’s Molina Healthcare. “This project will help expand the behavioral health care infrastructure in the North Sound and provide services and care with the dignity that patients and staff deserve.
Rates of anxiety and depression among American adults were four times higher last year than in pre-pandemic years. The Broadway campus redevelopment project will help provide community-based care for people in need of intensive services to support their behavioral health, by establishing a new 16-bed inpatient assessment and treatment center, a 16-bed crisis, intensive outpatient services, and crisis prevention offices.
“Through this partnership with MolinaCares, the redevelopment of our Broadway campus will allow us to better address some of our region’s most pressing behavioral health needs,” said Tom Sebastian, President and CEO of Compass Health. “We are excited to see the positive impact this new facility will have on our community, especially for those in need of intensive behavioral health care services.”
The Broadway campus, encompassing an entire city block in Everett, is Compass Health’s largest and most comprehensive site.
