CMHA-CEI Begins Major Expansion of Facility

Community Mental Health Authority of Clinton, Eaton and Ingham Counties (CMHA-CEI) announced today that it will begin the expansion of its current location at 812 E. Jolly Road on June 12th, 2017. The project is focused on adding space to the current facility; This added space will streamline the delivery of service to consumers, relocate offsite programs and staff, and better integrate services.

The expansion will add a three story, 42,600 square-foot addition to the current facility and will include a new lobby, new offices, and new clinical space. The expansion will also allow some of the programs that are currently housed at other locations to be relocated to centralize services for consumers.

The total costs related to the expansion will account for less than 1% of CMHA-CEI annual budget. Funding for this expansion is through a 10-million-dollar bond from Ingham County. Centralizing services will reduce current costs associated with rental of office space in other locations. These cost savings will be applied to the building expansion costs.

While CMHA-CEI has seen cuts to General Fund dollars from the State of Michigan, the agency has seen increases in funding from Federal Medicaid and Healthy Michigan dollars which has resulted in increased enrollments and services for consumers. Due to the current uncertainty healthcare funding faces, CMHA-CEI needs to expand the current facility. The expansion will not only accommodate continued growth, but if necessary it will also prepare CMHA-CEI for any potential funding reductions by allowing programs that are currently housed at leased locations to move back to the main facility.

“We are excited about bringing some programs back into the building and the benefits our consumers and employees will experience with more programs in one place. The additional space also offers us important options for the future.” - Sara Lurie, CEO.

During the expansion all programs and services will remain in place. A temporary main entrance will be located to the west side of the building. Additional security will be on site to direct consumers and visitors.

Construction on the expansion is expected to take about one year and will be completed Summer 2018. Renovations of the existing building will also be ongoing throughout the building phase and will be completed by Winter 2019.

Be sure to watch and for construction updates and information.
