The planned $20 million expansion of Hartgrove Behavioral Health System Hospital in Austin would be facilitated through a City land sale proposed to City Council by Mayor Brandon Johnson today.

The vacant, .92-acre lot at 5736 W. Roosevelt Road would be sold for its appraised value of $440,000 to UHS of Hartgrove, which employes 94,000 health care professionals at 400 facilities nationwide.

Vacant for more than two decades, the land would be used for a new 28,000 square-foot addition to Hartgrove’s existing building. The new wing would accommodate 24 double-occupancy patient rooms.
