"Clearly Tanner misread our application because our cost projections and facility drawings enable us to design a state-of-the art behavioral hospital that allows for the separation of patient populations and factors in all necessary renovation improvements that ensure patient safety," said Richard Kresch, M.D., CEO of US HealthVest.
"While Tanner contends that our child and adolescent length of stay projection is too high, it is consistent with the national average child and adolescent length of stay of over 10 days, per the National Association of Psychiatric Health Systems (NAPHS) 2012 Annual Survey," he added.
