Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a national, family-owned construction management and contracting company, recently topped out Agave Ridge Behavioral Hospital, officially marking the construction midpoint of the project. The 100-bed acute care behavioral health hospital is slated to open in early 2024.

“AP is honored to work with Acadia Healthcare to bring healing facilities to the community,” said Mark Mitchell, AP Southwest’s Vice President and General Manager. “Topping out Agave Ridge Behavioral Hospital signifies more than the midpoint in construction; it celebrates that we are one step closer to opening a facility where lives are changed and hope is restored.”

Agave Ridge Behavioral Hospital is a 73,930-square-foot hospital addressing the significant gap in mental health care in Arizona. The single-story building will include inpatient nursing units for adults and adolescents, exterior activity yards, an interior activity center, group therapy areas, administrative offices, PHP/IOP/ECT clinics, a pharmacy, kitchen, dining hall and training conference rooms.

“At Acadia Healthcare, our mission is to transform lives by providing exceptional behavioral healthcare services. We are thrilled to join forces with Adolfson & Peterson Construction in bringing our shared vision to life with the topping out of our new behavioral health hospital in Mesa,” said Dr. Jeffrey Woods, Acadia Healthcare’s Operations Group President. “Together, we are forging a path towards a brighter future, where individuals in need of compassionate care will find solace, healing and renewed hope.”

AP supports mental health treatment across the nation through its work on higher education facilities, hospitals, correctional facilities, office buildings and public safety facilities. AP has maintained an office in Arizona for more than 30 years. Since then, AP Southwest successfully completed industrial and healthcare projects for clients such as Reunion Rehabilitation Hospitals, Acadia Healthcare and United Surgical Partners International.
