About NHS Human Services

Northwestern Human Services (operating as NHS Human Services) exists to lend a helping hand to humans throughout the Northeast. The organization primarily offers a variety of behavioral health care services that include mental health and drug and alcohol rehabilitation, mental retardation services, juvenile justice, autism, special education, foster – more... care, and elder care. The not-for-profit organization provides programs for about 50,000 adults and children at hundreds of facilities in more than half a dozen eastern US states. NHS' programs are offered through its specialty care facilities, mobile clinics, and on an independent case management basis.

NHS has operations in Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. It expanded its behavioral health operations through the acquisitions of Allegheny Valley School, Tri County Human Services Center, and The Association for Independent Growth in Pennsylvania in 2008 and 2009.

The company also formed an operating division in Louisiana in 2008 in response to a Governor's Task Force initiative in the state to serve the mentally ill in the New Orleans area. NHS has expanded organically into the New York mental health market and plans to expand its foster care services into additional states outside of Pennsylvania.

As addiction to opioid painkillers has grown over the past several years, so too have NHS' addiction treatment programs. In 2009, the organization expanded its suboxone services throughout Pennsylvania (suboxone is a drug used to treat opioid dependence including heroin and narcotic painkillers). It also launched a mobile methadone clinic in New Jersey.

NHS has seen fairly stable financial growth over the past few years; in 2009 its revenue was up 40% from the previous year, primarily due to the absorption of its three newly-acquired businesses. Still, the company expects to revenues to continue to be strong as it increases collection rates for fee-for-service payers. – less
