AULTMAN HOSPITAL / AULTMAN HOSPITAL

Aultman Hospital in Canton closed the doors of its psychiatric unit this week. It was the last remaining inpatient psychiatric care facility in Stark County.

The decision to close was made because new regulations to psychiatric care would require $2 million in renovations to the unit.

Instead, the hospital decided to focus its care strategy on emergency room treatment for more urgent cases and outpatient care for long-term issues.
