Pioneer secured a 93,000 sq ft building site for two new behavioral treatment facilities about 15 miles southwest of downtown. After a new outpatient site becomes operational, the company plans to build a behavioral health complex, including inpatient and wellness services, which could generate more than $25 million annually. This will augment the company's soon to be opened 55-bed Seven Hills Behavioral Institute in Henderson, NV, southeast of Las Vegas. The scope of services delivered will be tailored to the needs of the company's strategic partners.
