Sacramento Bee

Despite the protests of some residents of a nearby neighborhood, the Sacramento City Council voted Tuesday to approve the construction of a 120-bed psychiatric hospital in a North Sacramento business park.

The council voted unanimously to approve the project after more than two hours of debate.

Signature Healthcare Services plans to construct the facility on Expo Parkway, which sits between Highway 160 and the American River Parkway. The hospital site is across the highway from Woodlake, a leafy residential neighborhood.
