Princeton House Behavioral Health
Senior Vice President
Princeton HealthCare System
Richard Wohl has devoted his professional career to the field of behavioral health. As President of Princeton House Behavioral Health (PHBH) and Senior Vice President of Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS), Mr. Wohl is responsible for all behavioral health services at PHCS, including Princeton House Behavioral Health, the Center for Eating Disorders Care and the University Medical Center of Princeton (UMCP).
Princeton House Behavioral Health offers one of the most comprehensive continuums of care in New Jersey with psychiatric and addictions services for children, adults and older adults in seven locations throughout central and southern New Jersey. It encompasses 110 inpatient beds, 3,800 admissions per year and approximately 5,000 outpatient admissions and 90,000 outpatient visits. In 2005, Mr. Wohl oversaw a $13 million project that included construction of a new 25,000-square-foot facility and renovations to 65,000 square feet of space in the existing inpatient facility. This was followed in 2014 by a completely renovated $3 million kitchen and cafeteria. Major outpatient center services expansion in both Burlington and Mercer Counties was completed in 2013. The newest outpatient center in Monmouth County opened in 2015, further expanding PHBH services regionally.
Located in UMCP, and one of only two programs in the state, the 22-bed Center for Eating Disorders Care has attracted international recognition for its intensive, individualized in- and outpatient treatment for patients and their families, for the severely medically involved as well as very young children affected with eating disorders. UMCP offers a dedicated psychiatric emergency room, including telepsychiatric capacity, and an active consultation and liaison service for medical patients. They have been recent leaders in integrating medical treatment with behavioral health awareness.
Earlier in his career, Mr. Wohl was Mental Health Administrator at Atlantic City Medical Center, where he also served as Contract Administrator for InterPsych Associates, King of Prussia, Pa. He was also Executive Director of Philadelphia Center for Human Development as a Contract Administrator for the Albert Einstein Healthcare Foundation, Philadelphia. He began his healthcare career as Director of Mental Health and Addictions Services at Warminster General Hospital in Pennsylvania.
He received both his MBA and MSW degrees from Temple University, Philadelphia, and his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Marietta College in Ohio.
