Alabama's new psychiatric hospital is expected to open in December.

   Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/19c9nzR) that the new facility will replace the old Bryce Hospital, and will also be located in Tuscaloosa like the original Bryce.

   Officials say the new hospital will feature an area designers call a "recovery mall" that includes a chapel, library and canteen. The idea is to allow patients to experience everyday activities in a facility that doesn't feel like a hospital.
