Why is this not part of the new hospital in Newport?

Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital is limited to 25 beds because we are a federally designated Critical Access Hospital. Those beds must be reserved for people with acute and critical medical conditions. Patients in treatment for substance use disorder do not require that level of medical care. In addition, a home-like atmosphere is more conducive to residential recovery.
