Over the next decade, Mennonite mental health facilities opened across the United States. Philhaven was one of those centers, dedicated to providing the highest quality mental health services within a Christian environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
Philhaven's doors opened on May 7, 1952, as a 26-bed inpatient facility with outpatient and community education services. Today, Philhaven offers a continuum of mental health services for all ages throughout Lancaster, Lebanon, Dauphin (Harrisburg), and York counties at 11 offices. Philhaven is a non-profit behavioral healthcare facility that is an agency of the Lancaster Conference of the Mennonite Church USA.
The vision that created Philhaven continues to guide us today. Behavioral healthcare services have changed and improved dramatically since Philhaven opened in 1952. Constantly seeking to "find a better way" provides the staff at Philhaven an inspiring catalyst to wholeheartedly serve the families and community members they meet each day.
