GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley will help celebrate the expansion to Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services.

Wednesday, June 26, the hospital will dedicate the Van Andel Cook Center for Dementia and Geriatric Behavioral Health. It is the second in a three-phase expansion project on the Pine Rest campus, which adds up to a $12.24-million investment.

Phase two includes new construction of 10,092 square feet and renovation of an existing 11,182 square feet. The inpatient unit has increased its capacity from 20 patient beds to 26.

When completed, the project is expected to create 52 new jobs.

The dedication begins at 1:30 p.m. at the Pine Rest Campus, located at 300 68th Street.
