The Oceans Behavioral Hospital Plano is now officially seeing patients older than 55 in need of behavioral health. The center provides care to adults with behavior disturbances and other brain-related degenerative conditions.
The 48-bed, 37,000 square foot facility, which began seeing patients in September, is a joint project between Oceans Healthcare, a provider of behavioral healthcare for senior and adult patients, and SRP Medical, a real estate development and investment company focused on medical properties.
The hospital, which provides both inpatient and outpatient care, is located at 4301 Mapleshade Road in Plano.
“Oceans Healthcare is excited to be opening in Plano and proud to be serving all of the communities in North Texas. North Texas has one of the nation’s fastest growing senior populations, and we are thrilled to be able to provide our specialized and compassionate care to seniors and their families,” said Jason Reed, Chairman and Founder of Oceans Healthcare, in a statement.
The 60 and older population in Texas is expected to grow nearly 50 percent between 2010 and 2040, and the 85 and older population is expected to grow by the same amount by 2020, according to U.S. Census data. In addition, Texas’ 5.2 million baby boomers will all be at least 65 by 2030, so the need for more care facilities aimed at this demographic exists.
Dallas-based Rogers O’Brien Construction was the general contractor of the facility and Ascension Group Architects, LLP in Arlington was the architect.
