More than 100 people were present for the Boys Town Residential Treatment Center open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, May 18. Guided tours were available to guests to see the updated modern bedrooms, playrooms and amenities for children 5-18 with severe behavioral and mental health problems. The expanded 80-bed facility, located at 14092 Boys Town Hospital Road, will welcome youth at the end of May.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony featured short speeches by members of administration who played a critical role in bringing this expansion project to fruition. Speakers included John Arch, Executive Vice President of Healthcare; Pat Connell, Vice President of Behavioral Health; Douglas Spellman, M.D., Medical Director, Boys Town Behavioral Health Services; and Father Steven Boes, Executive Director of Boys Town.
