LCH holds ribbon cutting at Pia Center for Behavioral Health

LCH Health and Community Services (LCH) celebrated the opening of Pia Center for Behavioral Health with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Nov. 18. 

The Pia Center is located at LCH West Grove at 105 Vineyard Way, Suite #103. The LCH West Grove office, located in the Jenners Village Professional Building, also provides dental services, pediatric care, women’s health services, and social assistance for local residents.

Among those in attendance at the event were State Sen. Carolyn Comitta, State Sen. John I. Kane, State Rep. John Lawrence, Ethan Seletsky, the Regional Representative from the office of U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Oxford Mayor, Philip Harris, Michael and Nancy Pia and the Pia family, members of the LCH board, members of the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce, and community members. LCH staff welcomed those in attendance to take a tour of the new facility. 

The Pia Center for Behavioral Health enhances LCH’s longstanding commitment to ensuring access to behavioral and mental health services. This new purposefully designed space is dedicated to helping patients safely access high-quality, supportive care from qualified professionals. 

“LCH has been a valuable resource in our community for decades, and we are honored to partner with them in the development of the new Center for Behavioral Health,” said Nancy and Mike Pia, who generously sponsored the state-of-the-art facility. 

Outpatient services, group therapy, and other clinical services will all be offered through the new facility in West Grove. Patients can also receive behavioral health care by visiting the LCH Kennett Square and Oxford locations, as well as via Telehealth. 

“At LCH, we're committed to our community’s well-being, and we understand that mental health is just as important as physical health,” said Ronan W. Gannon, the LCH CEO. “That's why we're thrilled to be accepting new patients for both in-person and telehealth appointments at our Pia Center for Behavioral Health at our West Grove location as well as our locations in Kennett Square and Oxford.” 

“Taking care of your mental health is an act of self-love.” said Cheryl B. Kuhn, CEO of the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce. “With the implementation of this critically important center, we are taking another step to ensure our residents have access to the help they need, which is crucial given the continued need for these services.” 

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), one in five adults and one in six youth face a mental health challenge each year. The Pia Center for Behavioral Health is a vital resource for individuals and families in southern Chester County who need affordable, compassionate access to high- quality care. 

“Our sincere thanks and appreciation to the Pia family for their commitment and support, and to LCH—CEO, Ronan Gannon and his tireless staff—kudos to all,” said Kuhn. 

LCH is currently accepting patients for behavioral health services at the Pia Center for Behavioral Health, at all other locations, and via Telehealth. Call or walk in to any of the offices.
