As President of Princeton House Behavioral Health (PHBH) and Senior Vice President of Princeton Health, Mr. Wohl is responsible for all behavioral health services at Princeton Health, including Princeton House Behavioral Health, the Princeton Center for Eating Disorders and the Princeton Medical Center (PMC).
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 eight locations throughout central and southern New Jersey. It encompasses 110 inpatient beds, 3,400 admissions per year and approximately 4,800 outpatient admissions and 96,300 outpatient visits. Construction of a new $13 million, 25,000 square-foot facility and renovations to 65,000 square feet of space in the existing patient facility was completed in 2005. 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 Princeton Medical Center, and one of only two inpatient programs in the state, the 22-bed Princeton Center for Eating Disorders has attracted international recognition for its intensive, individualized in- and outpatient treatment for patients and their families, for the severely medically involved and for very young children affected with eating disorders. PMC also offers a dedicated psychiatric emergency room, including telepsychiatric capacity, and an active psychiatric consultation and liaison service for medical patients. They have been recent leaders in integrating medical treatment with behavioral health awareness.
