About Piedmont Healthcare

PBH is committed to collaborative partnerships that include consumers, community stakeholders, providers, elected officials, and other governmental agencies in all aspects of our role as Regional Systems Manager. As a Systems Manager, PBH strives to be open, responsive, and transparent in the execution of our responsibilities. We recognize that self evaluation is essential in measuring our performance against our Mission and Values, and that there will always be the need for continual improvements. PBH is responsible for services to the people of Cabarrus, Davidson, Stanly, Rowan, and Union Counties. These counties are located north and east of Charlotte, in a geographic area that is both rural and urban, and which has a rapid population growth. PBH with its population of 644,000 is the largest multi-county program in North Carolina, and and the third largest program in the state. PBH's role is to manage financial resources and direct services to people in need of mental health, developmental disability and substance abuse care. These services are provided through a network of Provider Agencies and Licensed Practitioners that are located across the five counties and which are under contract with PBH. Our goal is to develop a system that is driven by consumer and family priorities, and which is capable of making continual adjustments to meet the changing needs and choices of our citizens in need of services and supports. The values of Recovery, Self-Determination, Person Centered Planning and Consumer and Family driven services are the foundation of the system that is being reengineered at PBH, as part of North Carolina's Mental Health System Reform Initiative. In June 2003, the Secretary of the Division of Health and Human Services, Carmen Hooker Odom, designated PBH as the Demonstration Project for North Carolina. As the state's demonstration, PBH will be fully implementing the principles of reform that were endorsed by the General Assembly in the Mental Health System Reform Legislation of 2001, reflected in North Carolina's state plan Blueprint for Change published in 2002, and that were affirmed by the President's New Freedom Commission Report of July, 2003. The PBH Demonstration Project will demonstrate how to reengineer the current system in order to develop a local/regional system of care that includes as its core principles, consumer empowerment, best practice implementation, partnerships with Providers, and extensive community collaboration with citizens, advocates, and community agencies. The PBH Demonstration Project will also demonstrate a strategic partnership between PBH and the Department of Health and Human Services, the Division of MH/DD/SA Services, and the Division of Medicaid in bringing to life public policy derived from the System Reform legislation of 2001.
