Governor Kathy Hochul today announced the start of a $40 million modernization of the Office of Mental Health's Central New York Psychiatric Center and Secure Treatment and Rehabilitation Center campus in the Oneida County town of Marcy. The project undertaken by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York will overhaul 100,000 square feet of the facility, including its infrastructure.
"We have an obligation to ensure that all state-run facilities are meeting the needs of the New Yorkers they serve,"
Governor Hochul said.
"By investing in this critical infrastructure update, we will ensure these facilities can continue to safely and more adequately serve both the workforce employed at this campus and the individuals housed there well into the future."
Building 77 and the Building 39 Medical Suite will be renovated, including the campus pharmacy and kitchen. The project will include upgrades to the electrical, lighting, data, and security systems, HVAC replacement, selective demolition, and asbestos and PCB abatement.
The work includes the renovation of approximately 100,000 square feet, including the installation of new boilers, chillers, pumps, and a new chilled water and heating water distribution system. Both buildings will be occupied through the duration of construction.
The Central New York Psychiatric Center provides inpatient services for inmates in custody of the state Department of Corrections and Community Services and pre-trial detainees from 25 upstate county jails, as well as restoration services for individuals found unfit to stand trial.
The Secure Treatment and Rehabilitation Center provides residential treatment to individuals ordered confined under New York's Sex Offender Management and Treatment Act.
