New High Desert Mental Health Urgent Care Center Comes to Lancaster

As stated in an article in the Antelope Valley Times, January 27, 2020, county and city officials joined community leaders to break ground for the new High Desert Mental Health Urgent Care Center at the High Desert Regional Health Center. Located at Avenue I and 5th Street East in Lancaster, the new Mental Health Urgent Care Center will be open 24/7 and will offer mental health services to adults, children and adolescents who are suffering a crisis and need immediate stabilization. Services will include diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, referrals, consultation, community engagement, crisis intervention/stabilization, medication support, and case management. In 2019, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors authorized $14.3 million to design and build the 9,000-square-foot Urgent Care building. The total budget for the project approved by the Board of Supervisors is $16.5 million. Construction on the new building, located east of the 142,000-square-foot health center, was scheduled to be completed in fall 2020.
