RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - West Hills Behavioral Health Hospital will close its doors and cease operations on December 20, 2021.

The facility has provided behavioral health and addiction treatment for children, adolescents and adults.

The CEO of West Hills, Burton Carriker, provided a statement to KOLO: “West Hills Behavioral Health Hospital has announced its intention to close effective December 20, 2021. Our decision to close comes after completing a comprehensive review and evaluation of multiple factors including the cost to renovate the aging infrastructure. We will continue to provide treatment and care to our current admitted patients until they have completed programming.

Since 1981, West Hills Behavioral Health Hospital has provided quality treatment services for adults and seniors. We thank the physicians and staff for their expertise and dedication to the patients we have been privileged to serve.”

Carriker says employees are being encouraged to apply for open positions at its sister facilities in the region.
