Rosecrance and Jackson Recovery Centers have announced they intend to merge in 2019.
The move would expand behavioral health treatment services in the Midwest region. With the addition of Jackson, Rosecrance will operate nearly 60 locations throughout the Midwest.
“I believe our boards of directors are doing what good non-profits should do, and that is to look down the road 5 or 10 years and ask what we need to do to grow our mission, given the challenges we face with funding and the opportunities we have to meet growing community needs,” said Rosecrance President/CEO Philip W. Eaton.
Jackson Recovery Center is based in Iowa and will become an affiliate of Rosecrance starting January 1, 2019.
The merger of Jackson into Rosecrance will bring more addiction treatment options into the Midwest and result in more integrated behavioral health services for residents of the Siouxland area encompassing parts of Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota.
The full merger will be finished before July 1, 2019.
