Explanation

BACKGROUND

This legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to enter into a Grant Agreement, in an amount up to $3,500,000.00, with the Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County (ADAMH) to advance the planning, design and construction of the Franklin County Mental Health and Addiction Crisis Center (Crisis Center).  The Crisis Center will be owned by ADAMH who will contract with a provider that will operate the center. This is the 2nd contribution of a three-year capital commitment totaling $10 million. 

 

The Crisis Center will serve as the cornerstone of our community’s continuum of crisis care and a preferred destination for mental health and addiction crisis services, and is intended to decompress hospital emergency departments with the ability to facilitate medical clearances and patient transfers. In addition, the Crisis Center will provide an appropriate and efficient center for law enforcement to take individuals who will be treated at the Crisis Center, with programming designed to align to evidenced based practices to improve outcomes resulting in fewer hospital admissions and reduced readmission rates.

It is estimated that Franklin County’s population will grow by 8% over the next 10 years and the Crisis Center’s community steering committee estimates they will see a 23% increase in the need for mental health and addiction services over this same period.  It is estimated that the volume in year one for the Crisis Center will be 28,000 encounters, and approximately 34,500 encounters by year 10.  

The estimated total project budget, including planning and design, construction, fixtures, furnishings, equipment, technology needs, and contingency is initially estimated to be $50 million.  This estimate is based upon the projected volumes and intended service offerings, with approximately 72,000 square feet planned for the Crisis Center.

Emergency action is requested to support ADAMH to ensure necessary funding is established to maintain the project schedule.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  Funding is available in 2021 Capital Improvement Budget.

 

CONTRACT COMPLIANCE:  The vendor number is 006183 (Treasurer Franklin County) and contract compliance is not required of a governmental entity.
