They have been high-level, key contributors to the dramatic growth and success of our company.”

Pyramid Healthcare was founded by Wolf in 1999 as a lone facility in central Pennsylvania. Today, Pyramid and its 16 affiliated and subsidiary companies, which represent over 80 distinct treatment facilities and specialty schools, treat over 12,000 clients daily through the commitment and dedication of over 3,000 staff members throughout 8 states.

Pyramid’s mission is to cultivate a team of committed professionals, passionate about identifying human service needs and creating solutions for individuals and families that result in a stronger quality of life. Pyramid’s focus is squarely on increasing client access to treatment, leveraging technology to improve treatment outcomes and investing in people to provide the highest levels of care to every client, every day.

“Our goal remains clear and the passion that we all share to execute and deliver on it is stronger than ever. Pyramid’s future is bright, and our incredible team is excited to build on the opportunity to bring our services to more people,” Deutchman declared.

We will continue to invest in our people, technology, and processes to fortify our organization as we face this epidemic with determination. We are committed to continuing our mission of providing innovative treatment and the highest quality of care, and I’m confident that our team will continue to make a real difference in the lives of those we serve,” remarked Hendricks.
