Bridgeway Behavioral Health Services, a program of Bridgeway Rehabilitation Services, hosted a ribbon-cutting event to celebrate the grand opening of its new headquarters last month at the Clermont Terrace facility in Union.
The 25,000-square-foot space, built by SFC Enterprises, will house Bridgeway’s offices, including administrative services and direct care clinical services vital to the community.
The existing building, which was previously a private academy, sat vacant for many years.
Bridgeway acquired the building in 2020 and SFC Enterprises began interior and exterior renovations to accommodate its multiple uses. The scope of the project included all-new, state-of-the-art mechanicals, additional bathrooms to accommodate personnel, power upgrades from Public Service Electric & Gas, new roofing and extensive exterior infrastructure work.
Now that the building is code compliant and up to the 2022 standards, Bridgeway can operate out of the state-of-the-art facility to help serve the community.
“The new facility demonstrates Bridgeway’s investment in a new model of integrated behavioral health care delivery and will have a significant impact on residents of Union County and the surrounding area,” said Cory Storch, CEO and president of Bridgeway.
“The colocation of these services under one roof will enable us to advance and expand our programs to reach even more of the most underserved populations in our community, people with behavioral health conditions.”
SFC Enterprises values having the opportunity to build for organizations such as Bridgeway Behavioral Health Services, which impact the community so greatly.
“Building throughout COVID-19 proved to be challenging, with labor and supply chain issues, but with thinking outside the box and having a great support system from the team at Bridgeway, SFC was able to bring this project to the finish line and I am very proud to have been a part of that moment within the community,” Frank Cannizzaro, executive vice president of SFC Enterprises, stated.
