Hello,

I believe this was sent to the wrong department. This is Vital Statistics.

Hi, Evan. Sorry for the previous email. We don't have any records responsive to this request. Health facilities, including private psychiatric hospitals, are now regulated by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, so you'll need to contact it for these records. You can reach the press office there at carrie.williams@hhsc.state.tx.us<mailto:carrie.williams@hhsc.state.tx.us>.

Thanks,
Chris
