Throughout the pandemic the need for mental health treatment has grown significantly. But a new psychiatric facility for the most severe cases has sat empty for more than a year. Now, Administrators of the Hawaii State Hospital are planning to finally open in phases starting next week.

KANEOHE, Hawaii (KITV4) -- After 15 months and $160 million, the Hawaii State Hospital's psychiatric facility is scheduled to open on April 13.

"It's just taken way too long, none of the excuses really make any sense," said Sen. Jarrett Keohokalole, who represents Kaneohe.
