Bryce patients to relocate

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - The Alabama Department of Mental Health says nearly a third of the  Bryce Hospital's patients will move into community-based care.

Authorities say small group homes are a better setting for many.

Last week, Bryce was sold to the University of Alabam for $77million.

The change will happen over the next few months.
