The Company will support the crisis receiving center's design and buildout and will operate the center located in Woodbridge, Virginia.

"Throughout the procurement process, Connections Health Solutions demonstrated their expertise in providing high-quality, community-based behavioral health crisis care and an understanding of how to meet the unique needs of the community. We look forward to partnering with them to open the crisis receiving center and seeing the impact their model will have on those in need of this life-saving treatment and care."
