U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) secured $2 million in federal funding for Phase II construction of Compass Health’s Broadway Campus Redevelopment project, as part of the Fiscal Year 2022 spending bills that recently passed the House of Representatives. House passage of spending legislation is an important step toward realizing Compass Health’s vision for a state-of-the-art regional center to support behavioral health needs across Northwest Washington.
“My priority in shaping spending bills is to invest in local projects that provide vital services residents rely on and create jobs in Northwest Washington,” said Larsen. “Phase II of Compass Health’s Broadway Campus redevelopment project meets those important standards by providing a safe, state-of-the-art facility for individuals in need of behavioral health care in our community.”
Compass Health’s project also aligns with funding objectives to support economic growth: the facility will employ 130 behavioral health and medical professionals long-term, and create an estimated 150 to 200 jobs during design and construction.
