Rehab center to relocate patients

Battle Creek Enquirer
29 December 2007

The Narconon Stone Hawk East Rehabilitation Center will downsize for the winter months.

Per Wickstrom, president of Stone Hawk, said Monday that 23 patients from the Albion facility will be moved to the Stone Hawk facility in Battle Creek. Also, five to 10 jobs will be either eliminated from the Albion facility or transferred to Battle Creek.

Wickstrom said the Albion facility still will be full-service and open 24 hours daily. He said 15 to 20 patients will remain in the 120-bed Albion facility. With the 23 transfers, the 100-bed Battle Creek
facility will house nearly 100 patients, he said.

The transfers were made to save heating and boarding costs at Albion. Wickstrom said the winter months are slow at the drug treatment facility, and moving the patients to Battle Creek would save about $8,000 per month.
