Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital announces CEO

MARYSVILLE – Matt Crockett, a seasoned behavioral healthcare executive with extensive hospital management experience, has been named the new Chief Executive Officer at Smokey Point Behavioral Hospital set to open its doors at the end of June.

As the CEO, Crockett will lead the senior management team at the new 115-bed hospital currently under construction at 3955 156th St. NE in Marysville.

The 70,000-square-foot facility to be operated by US HealthVest is midway through construction. The innovative facility will provide specialized services for mental health and chemical dependency services for children, adolescents, adults and seniors.

Comprehensive services will include free initial assessments, inpatient care, intensive outpatient services, and outpatient referral to community professionals.

Crockett most recently served as executive director of the Eating Recovery Center of Washington in Bellevue. Priot to that, he served as Assistant Administrator at Fairfax Hospital, an independent psychiatic hospital in Kirkland, as well as Chief Executive Officer at Seattle-based Cascade Behavioral Hospital.

The behavioral hospital is now recruiting for medical director and staff.

US HealthVest broke ground on the hospital last July.

In addition to services for children and adolescents, the hospital will provide specialized services designed to meet the needs of the local community, US HealthVest officials said. Smokey Point’s clinical approaches will be evidence-based providing for the best possible opportunity for positive outcomes.

The hospital will bring about 250 jobs to the area.
