Menninger Clinic

Recommended Posts

After seeing Buffalo Lakes, I noticed Kirksey has another project that started a few months ago.

I'm guessing this is the location, per the HBJ article and Kirksey rendering. http://maps.google.c...019205&t=h&z=16

It won't be as nice as the Menninger campus in Topeka. That was a beautiful place, with hills, trees, etc. Just in the wrong location to keep up with changes in medical economics.

Looks good. The map is not oriented to N it seems. Wonder what the height of the tallest building will be. Is there space there for this?

The article said "low density", and since it's a mental health campus, I doubt anything over 5 stories.

Any updates to this project?  Small education and outpatient care center addition.

A new $16 million outpatient and education center at The Menninger Clinic, funded entirely with philanthropic gifts, will help to address the community’s unmet needs for mental health care and education, Menninger President and CEO Dr. C. Edward Coffey, said today. Construction of the 25,000-square-foot building will begin this fall with the opening slated for fall 2018.

HOUSTON, Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Menninger Clinic, a nationally ranked psychiatric hospital for 30 consecutive years, names Armando E. Colombo its new president and chief executive officer. With 30 years of experience in health care operations and national marketplace knowledge, Colombo is equipped to lead Menninger toward its 100th anniversary by building upon Menninger's patient care services and expanding access to people seeking mental health care.

 

Colombo has been executive vice president and chief operating officer the past two years at Sheppard Pratt Health System, the nation's largest private, nonprofit provider of mental health, substance use, developmental disability and social services. Colombo joined Sheppard Pratt in 2017 from Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he served as chief executive officer of Vanderbilt Stallworth Rehabilitation Hospital and interim chief executive officer of Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital.

 

At Sheppard Pratt Health System, Colombo has implemented operational strategies and assisted with quality of care initiatives to provide patients with better care and services across Sheppard Pratt's programs.

 

"We are confident that Armando's veteran experience and positive approach to leadership will guide Menninger's growth strategically and elevate Menninger's visibility in the community," said Jeff Paine, chair of The Menninger Clinic's Board of Directors, who led the national search for the new CEO.

Anyone know why this road extension was built? It's not a turnaround.  It doesn't go anywhere, stops at the gate.  The driveway has safety cones around it and markings on the fence.

 

This would be a future road for a Menninger Clinic expansion?

The Gathering Place Capital Campaign Reaches Fundraising Goal

http://www.menningerclinic.org/news-resources/the-gathering-place-capital-campaign-reaches-fundraising-goal

 

Quote

 

The Menninger Clinic is pleased to announce the successful completion of the “Building Better Futures” capital campaign for The Gathering Place. In total, nearly $900,000 was raised to support renovations to The Gathering Place facility and enhance member programs. The campaign initially launched in the spring of 2018.


Based on a psychosocial clubhouse model, The Gathering Place offers a welcoming community to local adults with serious and persistent mental illness. Focusing on strengths rather than limitations, members of The Gathering Place are empowered to learn, grow and find support through free services and activities. 

 

The Gathering Place moved to its current location on Willow Drive in southwest Houston in 2004. The building has been well loved in the years since, and with the support of our capital campaign donors, we are excited to make important updates to ensure The Gathering Place continues to be a safe and vibrant environment for clubhouse members.


Some of the planned updates include constructing a new teaching kitchen where members will learn to cook healthy meals; relocating and expanding the computer lab to allow for group classes; creating a new gym area and group exercise room; and updating the main gathering room with soft furnishings and conversation areas.


Houston-based Kirksey Architecture designed the construction plans, and Texana Builders will serve as general contractor. Permitting is currently underway. Renovations are expected to begin in mid-July and be completed by December 2020. The total construction cost is $864,545, with the remaining funds going toward program enhancements for members, such as vocational support and educational assistance.

Glad to see Menningers is still around, but, as I said a few years ago, there's no way this is as nice as the old campus in Topeka. That was a beautiful setting, with trees and hills.

My uncle and aunt worked at Menningers back in the 60's and early 70's. The west campus with the tower was beautiful. It's all boarded up now. Hope it will be preserved.

Building permit for The Gathering Place renovations.  What is interesting is the price on the permit.  Menninger's press release indicates $900,000. They are right on the dot!
