Seven Counties Services, Inc. is no more.
The mental health provider announced Monday that it officially merged with not-for-profit Tennessee-based Centerstone and will now be known as Centerstone of Kentucky.
For the coming months, patients won’t see any changes. But in the next two years, Centerstone plans to expand services and do more research.
Centerstone, which started in 1991, offers mental health services in Florida, Illinois, Tennessee, Indiana and now Kentucky. Starting Tuesday, Tony Zipple, president and CEO of Seven Counties, will become CEO of Centerstone of Kentucky.
Zipple said the merger means the local provider will have more resources for services like setting up “health homes” for people with serious mental health and medical conditions.
