Richard Wohl, who has led the expansion of services at Princeton House Behavioral Health during the past two decades, has been named the organization’s first president.
A unit of Princeton HealthCare System, Princeton House is a leading provider of behavioral healthcare services. Wohl has managed Princeton House for the past 22 years as a senior vice president for Princeton HealthCare System. He will retain that title in addition to becoming president of Princeton House.
Princeton HealthCare System President and CEO Barry S. Rabner said that Princeton House was serving about 80 patients at a single location when Wohl began managing its operations.
Today Princeton House serves about 8,500 clients annually at seven locations—an inpatient facility in Princeton, five outpatient centers in southern and central New Jersey and the Center for Eating Disorders Care at University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro.
Hospital officials said Princeton House also has developed a variety of innovative programs, including services for people who need both mental health and substance abuse treatment, the nationally recognized eating disorders program at the University Medical Center a telepsychiatry program ensuring that Princeton House psychiatrists are available at all hours via video to evaluate the behavioral health needs of patients in the University Medical Center Emergency Department, and other specialized services.
“Richard has assembled an outstanding administrative and clinical team and a strong physician team of 40 psychiatrists,” Rabner said in a news release about the appointment. “Under his leadership, Princeton House has grown into a regional leader in mental health and addiction services.”
