JOHN DAY Community Counseling Solutions will hold an open house Monday, Feb. 18, at its new Juniper Ridge Acute Care Center in John Day.
The open house will be from 4 to 7 p.m. at the center, at 194 Ford Road, just past Blue Mountain Hospital.
The public is invited to the open house. The center is expected to open for patient care later next week.
The center will provide emergency and short-term residential care for people suffering mental crises. Most of the patients are expected to come from outside Grant County, and when stabilized, will either return to their homes or be transferred to a different type of facility for continuing care.
The center is expected to employ about 20 people.
