Penn Foundation Announces New Director of Integrated Health Services

As behavioral and physical healthcare trend toward a more integrative approach on a national level, Penn Foundation is positioning itself to provide holistic care at the local level. To meet this need, Angela Hackman, MSW, LSW, has been named Director of Integrated Health Services, a newly established position that reflects the organization’s commitment to providing care that incorporates the needs of the whole person.

As Director of Integrated Health Services, Angela will oversee both the Health Connections and REACH (previously known as IPR) programs. She will also provide leadership for other Penn Foundation initiatives aimed at the integration of physical and behavioral healthcare. These integration efforts, which promote more effective and efficient communication and coordination of treatment and wellness management strategies, are at the core of Penn Foundation’s mission to address the needs of the whole person.

 “My primary vision of integrated health services is to create stronger connections between physical health and behavioral health systems at various levels,” says Angela. “By creating these connections, we will be able to coordinate care, which will result in satisfied clients who are empowered and engaged in their own well-being.”

 Angela has been with Penn Foundation since 2010, most recently serving as Team Leader and Behavioral Health Navigator for the Health Connections program. She previously worked at Penn Foundation from 2005-2007 as Lead Practitioner of the IPR (Intensive Psychiatric Rehabilitation) program. Angela earned her graduate degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania and her undergraduate degree from Eastern Mennonite University (Harrisonburg, VA).
