Why the Parkland-Spanaway area?

There has been an increasing number of behavioral health crisis incidents occurring in central and southern Pierce County. The only crisis care facility in Pierce County is located in Fife. It is challenging for first responders from central and southern Pierce County due to the distance and time required to get to that facility. To provide easier access, the new crisis recovery center will be located near the junction of SR 7 & SR 512, at the request of first responders.
