The boards of directors of Crossroads and Beacon Health recently voted to merge the two mental and behavioral health agencies. The purchase comes as changes to Medicaid are about to arrive to Ohio on January 1 of next year.
It is anticipated by the two organizations that the care integration resulting from the merger will lead to better outcomes and results for consumers. Both agencies state that their clients will see no change in their level of care, and will be able to continue seeing their current providers. A name for the newly forming organization has not been decided yet, however, locations and staffing levels are planned to remain unchanged.
Crossroads provides continuum of care for children, adolescents and young adults who are experiencing emotional and behavioral changes. Beacon Health promotes wellness and enhances the lives of adults with mental illness and addiction disorders to live, learn, and participate fully in their family and community.
