The hospital’s 80 beds accommodate adolescents and adults. The two story patient wing has expansive windows to take advantage of the surrounding views and provide for open and bright patient areas. The campus also features a one story building for therapy, education, dietary and administration.
The six-acre campus is adjacent to a 123 acre Audubon Wildlife and Bird Sanctuary which is to be held in perpetuity and can not be developed from its natural state. The sanctuary is to be used to by the public as a regional nature and resource center along with an education building to be located on a five acre lot given by the developer next to the 123 acre preserve. This provides Springwoods with a peaceful setting for those embarked on the road to recovery.
