Our community commitment

Luminis Health Doctors Community Medical Center (LHDCMC) and Prince George’s County are partnering to expand access to high-quality behavioral health services for Prince Georgians. A central component to this initiative is the capital improvement of a building on LHDCMC's Lanham, Maryland. campus to house comprehensive inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services.

To make this capital improvement possible, LHDCMC has developed a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) contracting plan that maximizes participation of a wide variety of MBEs, as well as, Prince George's County MBE firms and county residents.

Throughout the duration of the project, we are committed to:

  • Proactively identifying contracting and procurement needs and developing a forecast of potential opportunities.
  • Unbundling large contracts — where appropriate — to expand certified MBE participation.
  • Conducting outreach, engagement and information sessions regarding contracting opportunities and bid schedules.
  • Developing partnerships with certifying MBE agencies to increase awareness of the project and MBE contract opportunities.

About the project

LHDCMC broke ground on the first phase of the mental health facility in April 2021, to include outpatient services and programs thanks to a $20 million grant from Prince George’s County. The new two-story, 31,200 square-foot facility located on the campus of LHDCMC will include inpatient psychiatric care for adults, outpatient therapy and medication management, walk-in urgent care, psychiatric day treatment programs (partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient), family support services, prevention programs, and care coordination with community-based support services.
