Goldberg, Goldberg, Racila, D’Alessandro and Noone; Dr. Madelyn Isaacs, Florida Gulf Coast University; Jim Reilly; and Geoff Roepstorff, Edison National Bank.

“The SalusCare Board is enthused about the future of this new not-for-profit organization that we believe will give our community what it needs most – a cohesive system of behavioral healthcare to address the needs of individuals with mental health and substance use issues,” Bower said.  “Our first year plan is to implement electronic medical records to enable us to share information across campuses.  When we do that, we can increase access points for care and serve more people in need of treatment.”

The merger of the two non-profits was announced July 1, forming the largest mental health and substance abuse treatment agency in Southwest Florida with an annual budget of just under $30 million and 450 employees serving 17,000 patients per year.

SalusCare, Inc., is led by President & CEO Kevin B. Lewis with former Lee Mental Health Center President & CEO David Winters serving as Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).

SalusCare offers outpatient and residential treatment for individuals with mental illness and substance use disorders from seven locations in Lee County and one in Hendry County.  The multi-faceted agency also offers detoxification services for adults, prevention programming and an Employee Assistance Program for about 60 area companies. The majority of programs are accredited by CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. SalusCare is a United Way agency.
