CHICAGO, IL (JUNE 24, 2021) – Mosaic Construction, LLC, a full-service commercial and multifamily design-build renovation firm, has completed construction and delivered a new Behavioral Health & Supportive Services Wing for TCA Health, located at 1029 East 130th Street on Chicago’s far southeast side. The medical clinic’s newly renovated wing provides expanded access to mental health and social services for the local communities it serves.
“The new Behavioral Health & Supportive Services Wing catalyzes TCA Health’s commitment to the health of the community and to the social determinants of health,” said Veronica Clark, CEO of TCA Health. “The new wing will specifically allow TCA Health to expand mental health services and its positive impact on treating the entire body.”
Programming will provide expanded access to counseling, case management, and other evidence-based practices to support recovery-promotion and provide resources related to substance use conditions.
“TCA’s renovated Behavioral Health Wing will be a tremendous asset to our community by providing counseling, substance treatment and critical stress management tools to help patients during these trying times,” said Mayor Thaddeus Jones of Calumet City and State Representative of the 29th District. “This will be a much-needed and expanded addition of integrated primary and behavioral health services for Chicago’s South Side communities.”
The 2,700-square-foot, grant-funded project transformed the patient reception area, waiting rooms, private offices, and counseling area with corridors that connect the East Wing to match an earlier renovation of the other side of the building. Renovation of the East Wing also featured new lighting, flooring, paint, acoustic ceiling tiles, stainless steel corner guards, and other finishes complementing the facility.
“We are proud to partner with TCA Health on their East Wing renovation and contribute to a bright, happy and positive environment for both patients and staff” said Ira Singer, Principal at Mosaic Construction. “This project also represents our continued work in the healthcare sector including medical office renovation services, interior construction of assisted living and independent living facilities, ambulatory care centers and similar spaces.”
“The newly renovated Behavioral Health Wing is so bright and cheerful, and so welcoming to patients,” said Roslyn Johnson, Behavioral Health Manager at TCA Health. “There is such a need in this community, and as society reduces the stigma, more people of color are open to getting help and seeking assistance. It’s important for us to be there for them and now the newly expanded space allows us to see even more patients in a timely fashion.”
