On July 1, 1998, Mercy Health Saint Mary's, Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services, and Metropolitan Hospital formed a Joint Operating Agreement to provide a full continuum of psychiatric inpatient and partial hospitalization services.

This agreement combines into one jointly managed structure, the behavioral health care inpatient and partial hospitalization services previously operated separately by all three organizations. Representatives from Mercy Health Saint Mary's, Pine Rest, and Metropolitan Hospital govern the Joint Operating Agreement.

Psychiatric bed licenses continue under both Mercy Health Saint Mary's and Pine Rest, and are housed primarily on Pine Rest's main campus. The adult psychiatric beds are under the Mercy Health Saint Mary's license, including those previously held by Pine Rest. This includes adult inpatient and partial hospitalization beds in Pine Rest's Van Andel and Mulder Therapy Centers at the Cutlerville campus, plus the Psychiatric Medical Unit (PMU) beds on the Mercy Health Saint Mary's campus. The Children, Adolescent, and Older Adult psychiatric beds remain under the Pine Rest license and are also housed on Pine Rest's main campus in Cutlerville.

There are a total of 130 acute beds located on the Pine Rest campus and 20 PMU beds located at the Mercy Health Saint Mary's campus.

This Joint Operating Agreement has been well received in West Michigan. It allows Mercy Health Saint Mary's and Pine Rest to serve the community's acute psychiatric needs, including commercial, Medicare and Medicaid populations, and to strengthen Mercy Health Saint Mary's and Pine Rest's ability to further their missions by providing high-quality psychiatric care in a healing, Christian environment.
