Each year, Berkshire Medical Center's Annual Fund and the annual Golf Tournament raise money to support a project that will benefit our patients and our community. Projects range from new technology to the development of new services, from unit renovations to the expansion of existing programs. Contributions from individuals in the community, local businesses and our employees help make these projects possible.
2015 Annual Fund to Support Mental Health Service Renovations
In order to continue to meet the complex needs of those seeking mental health care, BMC has undertaken a major renovation of all of its inpatient behavioral health units. This project includes significant improvements to the Jones 2 voluntary psychiatric unit, Jones 3 Psychiatric Intensive Care and the McGee Recovery Center. Each of these units is being rebuilt to provide enhanced privacy, comfort and safety. New wood flooring, larger rooms, individually adjustable climate control for each patient room and patient-adjustable blinds are being used to ensure a more home-like environment for our patients as they are treated and begin healing. State-of-the-art safety systems are in place for staff to immediately respond to a potential patient crisis, and a second nurses’ station has been added and strategically located to foster a more quiet atmosphere for patients at night.
BMC has a long history of meeting the needs of our community, through the addition of our improvements to key services. Our mental health is interconnected with our physical health and well-being, and BMC is committed to providing nothing but the best care possible for our community. With this in mind, gifts made to the BMC Annual Fund will support BMC’s Mental Health services and the facility improvements that enhance our care.
