"The 1990s & 2000s - Transformative Developments"


In the 1990s, Brook Lane Health Services underwent several transformative developments. In 1992, an expansion to the Laurels building included an 8-bed wing for the child and adolescent hospital, along with a new administrative wing. The following year, Meadowbrook (now North Village) Outpatient offices opened near Maugansville, MD. In 1994, The Laurels underwent a significant change, converting from an outpatient services location to Laurel Hall School, initially catering to secondary students. By 1996, Laurel Hall School expanded its reach to include elementary school students. In 1997, the organization rebranded from Brook Lane Psychiatric Center to Brook Lane Health Services to better encompass its diverse range of programs and services. The late 1990s saw the establishment of a transitional care home for adolescents in 1998, strategically located where the current adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is housed. The decade concluded with the celebration of Brook Lane's 50th anniversary in 1999, marked by a weekend of festivities.

Evolution and Education

Moving into the 2000s, Brook Lane Health Services continued to evolve. In 2004, a substantial hospital expansion was completed, introducing single-occupancy rooms for all patients and creating distinct units for children, adolescents, and adults. The expansion marked a significant chapter in the organization's growth. In 2008, this expansion continued with the opening of a second Laurel Hall School location in Frederick, MD.
