Children & Youth Unit at Rochester Psychiatric Center to Close

  • Text size: + -

A spokesperson for the state Office of Mental Health says budget cuts have forced the closure of the children and youth unit at the Rochester Psychiatric Center.

The spokesperson said the reduction is just one piece of a larger statewide reduction.

The state legislature authorized the Office of Mental Health to perform what it calls 'significant service reductions' to its inpatient services.

The move will mean the loss of up to 600 beds statewide.
