(KMOV) – Due to state budget cuts the emergency room at the Metropolitan St. Louis Psychiatric Center will soon close.
MPC officials are meeting with area hospitals to come up with a plan because they’re concerned that the mentally ill won’t be able to get the help they need.
The MPC treats about 2,200 patients a year from the city and 17 counties in Eastern Missouri.
