We wanted to let you know that Northeast Integrated Health (NIH) and CNS Healthcare are merging.
This collaboration of two long-term Community Mental Health providers allows us to collectively serve more persons across a larger geographic area. The partnership allows us to build on our shared programs, leverage assets and expand services across the tri-county area continuing to serve Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.
NIH and CNS Healthcare serve similar target populations. We have a shared vision and set of values around person-centered integrated healthcare delivered in one’s neighborhood. We are also excited to expand Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) services to the City of Detroit where this programming has not previously been present.
No service delivery programs will change this contract year and all services will be provided by the same staffing and governed by the group of individuals who currently hold fiduciary responsibility for the organizations. This integration of organizations will occur over the next ten (10) months.
Northeast Integrated Health will adopt the name of CNS Healthcare, and Mr. Garrett will become the presiding President and Chief Executive Officer, while Ms. McRill will become the Chief Visionary Officer of the combined corporation. All executive level and clinical staff have been offered the opportunity to apply for all vacant positions so our consumers will not experience a change in who services them during this business transition. Our two corporate boards have signed off after their respective due diligence period, and legal counsel is taking this matter through the Attorney General’s regulatory process to ensure compliance.
