Meet our new Director of Behavioral Health – Lauren Hovis

We're thrilled to announce Lauren Hovis as our new Director of Behavioral Health. Lauren has been with Good Neighbor for almost seven years and was most recently our Director of Community Based Services.

In addition to leading In Home Counseling programs, Lauren was instrumental in implementing the Anthem Intensive In-Home and Anthem Integrated Community Care pilots which were the first of their kind in the state of Virginia.

These programs also include a dashboard that displays real-time data allowing both payer and provider to generate data-driven insights and make strategic decisions that put the people we serve first.

The video below is an interview we did with Lauren a few months ago for The Whiteboard Room series. She describes what inspired her to start working in the mental health field, what she enjoys about her time at Good Neighbor, and what she likes to do for fun – like going to the river with her dogs. 🐕

We're excited for what Lauren brings to her new role where she'll oversee our Outpatient Psychiatry & Therapy as well as Community Based In Home Counseling services.
