A year ago, St. Elizabeths moved into the new state of the art facility. This facility is the first step of the St. Elizabeths campus redevelopment project. The new facility has also created the right therapeutic environment required for modern inpatient care, and has simultaneously saved $7 million in annual fixed costs by consolidating operations that were spread out over 12 aging buildings with high maintenance costs.
