JJCA and FRN: A Healthy Partnership

Mar 21, 2017 JJCA Creating Special Places

Foundations Recovery Network (FRN) is a leader in evidence-based, integrated treatment for co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. They offer this treatment in unique facilities in a variety of locations. Several are the result of the adaptive reuse of former resorts and lodges, often located in naturally tranquil settings that reinforce a healing environment.

Partnering with FRN on their latest project is an excellent match for us at JJCA as we continue to expand our portfolio of behavioral healthcare work. The conversion of the Bonneville Hot Springs Spa and Resort in Washington state into a 140-bed residential treatment facility nestled in the Columbia River Gorge will be FRN's seventh residential treatment center. We began our work on this project with a feasibility study, including extensive code and licensure review. The project is currently under construction, with completion expected by late summer.

Brian Mumpower, VP of Corporate Development with FRN, says team health is very important when partnering with an architect on the design and development of a project. He feels JJCA is a good cultural fit. "The folks at JJCA are experts in their field and I greatly respect their input and value their contributions. They are also exceptionally reliable. They do what they say they are going to do, when they say they'll do it." Brian feels that JJCA's size is an asset. "With JJCA, we aren't lost in the mix. I appreciate that a principal is involved in every project, for the entire project. That ensures consistency. You wouldn't receive this kind of top-level-down, hands-on support from a large firm. JJCA helps me be successful."
