Baylor medical center in Dallas closes inpatient psychiatric unit

Dallas Morning News, July 7, 2008

Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas has closed its inpatient psychiatric unit, eliminating nine beds reserved for mental-health patients. Advocates for mental-health patients say the loss of Baylor's psychiatric unit will exacerbate an already serious shortage of psychiatric hospital beds in Texas. However, a Baylor spokeswoman noted that the medical center's psychiatric unit had been underutilized, perhaps because of the growth of specialty psychiatric hospitals.
