Safety. Privacy. More space for family. Plus key resources to support best practices in pediatric mental and behavioral healthcare.

All these features and more were celebrated Aug. 25, 2023, at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new $108 million William K. Schubert, M.D. Mental Health Center, located at Cincinnati Children’s College Hill campus.

The 5-story, 160,000-square-foot building makes Cincinnati Children’s the largest inpatient mental health provider of any children’s hospital in the United States. Patient admissions are expected to begin in October.

“This building is a giant step forward in what we are able to do for children and families. It will house an expanding group of programs that will provide the most advanced evidence-based care for children and adolescents,” says Michael Sorter, MD, director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Cincinnati Children’s. “These programs will reach far beyond the walls of the hospital and throughout our community to improve outcomes for children and families.”
