Through regional support and leadership for collaboration and innovation, we work to strengthen the public behavioral health system and ensure excellence in services.


The vision of the Lakeshore Regional Entity is to promote the efficiency and effectiveness of the Members by jointly serving as the PIHP for Medicaid Specialty Behavioral Health Services for the region. Behavioral Health Services include services for persons with developmental disabilities, adults with mental illness, children with emotional disturbance and persons with substance use disorders. The Lakeshore Regional Entity seeks to build upon and maximize the unique strengths of the individual Member Boards serving Allegan, Kent, Lake, Mason, Muskegon, Oceana and Ottawa Counties, while establishing a regional organization and identity that supports an essential standard for services. The Lakeshore Regional Entity will promote performance that supports and advocates for and is informed by the needs of the individuals the Entity serves across the region.
