PROVIDENCE – Phoenix House in New England has appointed Peter Mumma, former system director of psychiatry, behavioral health and addiction medicine at LifeBridge Health in Maryland, as the nonprofit organization’s new senior vice president and regional executive.
“Pete Mumma brings more than 25 years of experience and skill to his work with New England’s leadership team,” said Ann Bray, Phoenix House president and CEO. “His outstanding performance in health care administration provides exceptional strategic, clinical and operational leadership as Phoenix House meets New England’s unique challenges.”
While serving as system director of psychiatry, behavioral health and addiction medicine at LifeBridge Health, Mumma led the strategic and operational transformation and modernization of allied behavioral health and addiction services. The system was comprised of four community and academic hospitals, over 100 outpatient sites, health and fitness centers, and related health initiatives.
Mumma also served on several key transformational collaborative groups to lead and impart larger statewide changes, including the Maryland Hospital Association’s Behavioral Health Executive Task Force initiatives, working toward the passage of sweeping legislative changes to enhance statewide access and resources for behavioral health and addiction services.
Mumma holds a Master of Science in counseling psychology from the University of Baltimore, a Bachelor of Science in psychology from Goucher College and will be awarded a Master of Business Administration in health care from York College of Pennsylvania in late 2017.
