NHS Human Services to Take Over Tri County Human Services Center
Date:12/1/2008

LAFAYETTE HILL, Pa., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Effective December 1, 2008, NHS Human Services (NHS), one of the largest non-profit providers of human services in the country, will expand operations to provide services in areas currently served by Tri County Human Services Center (TCHSC), headquartered in Carbondale, PA. TCHSC, along with its parent organization, Maxis Health System, has been looking for ways to deal with increasing financial challenges while maintaining programs in the communities they serve. They provide a full range of services to children and adults with behavioral health issues and intellectual and developmental disabilities.

After several months of negotiations, an agreement has been finalized with NHS which meets the goals of TCHSC to maintain current services, provide stability in care and treatment for everyone currently receiving services from TCHSC and also provide for future expansion of services. NHS will maintain the same offices and current staff will be afforded the opportunity to become employees of NHS. This plan provides a seamless transition for the 5,000 children and adults currently receiving care in Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Wayne and Monroe counties.

TCHSC, which employs 400 people, has four main offices and 13 children's partial hospital programs. The organization has been in existence as a non-profit since 1975 and joined with Marian Community Hospital in 1998 to form the Maxis Health System. In 2004, Maxis became a member of Catholic Health East (CHE).

Marian Community Hospital will continue to provide Adult Inpatient Psychiatric Care as well as crisis intervention services in its Emergency Department.

The County Commissioners for Lackawanna, Susquehanna and Wayne counties, who approve funding and monitor services within their counties, have approved this move. All contracts will be transferred to NHS and services will now be provided as part of the NHS Human Services system. Their approval was critical to the successful completion of this transaction.

NHS, which was one of the original base service units in Philadelphia, now provides care to over 50,000 individuals a year in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Maryland and Louisiana. NHS employs a staff of over 10,500. In addition, NHS, through its management company, provides financial management consultation services in North Carolina. NHS offers a full range of integrated services in the areas of behavioral health, intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD), addictive diseases, autism, juvenile justice, elder care and foster care.
