Addressing the Need
Prince George's County serves a population of nearly one million residents, yet only two acute inpatient psychiatric units exist in the county today. In 2019, more than half of the adult psychiatric admissions from Prince George's County (1,900 admissions) were admitted to out-of-county hospitals.
Additionally, the 2019 Prince George's County Community Health Needs Assessment identified behavioral health as a leading health priority.
Luminis Health is dedicated to helping address this major health issue. Residents will soon have more access to high-quality and easily accessible behavioral health services – improving their lives and strengthening the community.
About Our Partnership with Prince George's County
This program and services are made possible in part by funding from the Prince George's County Executive Office. In response to long-standing behavioral health disparities, Prince George's County Executive Angela Alsobrooks and the county council allocated $20 million dollars of capital funding to the behavioral health facility renovation. These funds have financed the majority of the renovation, transforming a former rehabilitation facility on the grounds of LHDCMC into a state-of-the-art behavioral health pavilion.
As part of our commitment to Prince George's County, Luminis Health will operationalize the new facility and provide continued investment and support needed for behavioral health services.
