Vt. pushes for fast construction of psych hospital

Associated Press Published: November 20, 2012

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The administration of Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is hoping to get the first shovel in the ground later this month on a new 25-bed psychiatric facility in Berlin that's to help replace the Vermont State Hospital in Waterbury.

That facility was forced to close by flooding from Tropical Storm Irene and is to be replaced by the Berlin hospital and a series of smaller psychiatric units around the state.

An unusually fast, emergency certificate of need process was completed Monday, with approval granted by the state Department of Financial Regulation.
