Holy Cross Hospital wants to create an inpatient mental health unit to help meet a need for services on the city’s Southwest Side.

Sinai Health System, which bought Holy Cross in January 2013, wants to add 50 beds, increasing the hospital’s total bed count to 286, chicagobusiness.com reports.

An application was submitted last week to the Illinois Health Facilities Services and Review Board.

Chicagobusiness.com noted Cadence Health in December unveiled plans for a 48-bed, $20 million acute mental illness unit at Winfield-based Central DuPage Hospital.
