Fulton State Hospital Nixon Forensic Center

Fulton State Hospital, built in 1851, is the oldest state psychiatric hospital west of the Mississippi River. The Biggs and Guhleman Forensic Centers on the campus treat patients with serious mental illness who are committed by Missouri courts for evaluation and treatment related to a crime, or who have seriously assaulted patients or staff in other state psychiatric hospitals. The project took three years of construction with a cost of $211 million, with $13 million appropriated for planning of the design.

New Fulton State Hospital operates as a 300-bed, high-security, psychiatric healthcare facility. In total, the multi-phased project includes (6) patient wings, administration building, energy center, and common connector core. CD Companies was selected by the State of MO to design the Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment (FF&E) package for the New Fulton State Hospital completed in 2019. This project was a collaborative opportunity with the Office of Administration and the Department of Mental Health and has allowed our team the ability to explore numerous opportunities to improve patient experience and safety within the new hospital.
