Robins & Morton Begins Work on $225M Permian Basin Behavioral Health Center

MIDLAND, TX — Construction firm Robins & Morton has begun work on the new Permian Basin Behavioral Health Center in Midland, Texas.

The 200-bed, $225 million facility, which will be built on a 54-acre site, will offer short- and long-term treatment for psychiatric patients of all ages. It will include a crisis stabilization unit, an outpatient center, amenities, and a community education center.

The facility is being developed by the Texas Facilities Commission and will be operated by a new entity co-sponsored by Midland County Hospital District and Ector County Hospital District. The project is funded by the State of Texas and a wide variety of Permian Basin individuals and charitable organizations.

“Robins & Morton is excited to begin work on this project that will help meet the growing need for behavioral health care services in Texas,” Robins & Morton Division Manager Eric Groat said. “We look forward to delivering this facility and seeing its positive impact on residents and their families.”

The project is scheduled for completion in late 2025.

“We have been truly inspired by the level of engagement and contribution from the Permian Basin community,” said Rachael Farrell, HKS Chair of Mental and Behavioral Health Design. “Leaders across education, health care, and energy lines have all come to the table to support the behavioral health center.”

Robins & Morton is the general contractor, and HKS is serving as the architect.
