Established in 1895 by Dr. William Alfred Passavant, Passavant Memorial Homes (PMH) is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3), human services provider organization whose mission is to empower individuals with intellectual disabilities and behavioral health needs to live successfully in the community. Through a continuum of care, the highest quality supports are always provided, while promoting choice and independence to over 650 children, adults, and seniors.
Originally founded as a provider of care to individuals with epilepsy, PMH eventually began to serve the mental health and mental retardation (MH/MR) populations, whose terminologies next evolved into mental health and intellectual and developmental disabilities (MH/IDD). The diagnoses are now most commonly referred to as behavioral health and intellectual disabilities (BH/ID).
PMH and its related corporations, Accessible Dental Services, Life Enrichment Trust, InvivaSpan Health, PDC Pharmacy, and Passavant Memorial Homes Foundation are known as the Passavant Memorial Homes Family of Services. Just as a family cares for one another, together these companies offer a wide range of supports to address the special needs and unique desires of individuals with disabilities.
The Passavant Memorial Homes Family of Services not only serves virtually the entire western Pennsylvania region, including Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, but has grown into one of the nation's foremost providers. The Passavant Memorial Homes Family of Services continually strives to be a consumer-driven organization that consistently exceeds the expectations of families, the community, and fellow provider agencies.
