HealthRIGHT 360, a large California community provider of behavioral and primary care services, is merging with Prototypes, a Los Angeles-based not-for-profit provider of residential and outpatient addiction treatment and mental health services. The deal brings with it eight facilities in Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties and represents the largest merger to date for HealthRIGHT 360.
The combined organization will have an annual operating budget of more than $115 million and serve nearly 40,000 men, women and children annually across California. CARF-accredited, Prototypes will retain its brand name, leadership and 250 staff members, and will operate as "Prototypes, a program of HealthRIGHT 360." The merger is scheduled to close at the end of June.
"Prototypes' groundbreaking work in specialty behavioral health services for women and their children, coupled with its array of services that empower survivors of domestic violence, offers a range of essential expertise that has been missing from traditional healthcare settings,” said Vitka Eisen, CEO of HealthRIGHT 360.
"Prototypes will now be able to integrate primary care with our mental health and substance-use disorder services as part of a leading statewide organization,” said Ann McClanathan, Prototypes' board chair, in a statement.
