AUSTIN -- Sledgehammers are signaling a major change at University Medical Center Brackenridge.

City and county leaders, along with representatives from Seton Healthcare, knocked down a wall Tuesday to make room for the hospital's new psychiatric emergency department.

The 17-bed center will open next spring.

Hospital officials say by 2016 it will treat more than 10,000 people a year.
