Sinfonia HealthCare Acquires New Orleans Based Mental Health Agency

TUCSON, Ariz., Dec. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sinfonía HealthCare Corporation, the pioneering health care company launched by Fletcher McCusker, the former CEO and Founder of Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq:PRSC), today announced it has acquired Quality Life Counseling, LLC based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Quality Life Counseling is a multi-faceted outpatient mental health agency that provides counseling services to children, families, couples and adults in the New Orleans area and is located in New Orleans and Metairie, Louisiana.

Sinfonía Family Services of Louisiana now offers mental health services in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes and has announced plans to expand into Lafayette and Baton Rouge.

About Sinfonía Healthcare and Sinfonía Family Services: Sinfonía HealthCare was launched in January 2013 by pioneering healthcare executives Fletcher McCusker and Michael Deitch, the CEO, CFO team and founders of Providence Service Corporation, which grew from $2 million in 1997 revenue in Tucson to over a billion dollars of annual revenue in 350 locations in 2012. Sinfonía presented the team the opportunity to build a new approach to community based medical care and the company quickly established a full continuum of health services including: hospice, home health, companion care, primary care, wellness and medication therapy management. The company currently provides services to over 7,500,000 covered patient lives. After July of 2014 (the termination of the non-compete period with Providence) Sinfonía launched a behavioral health division designed to integrate mental health, pharmacy and primary care. As a result the behavioral health division has business opportunities in Virginia, Arizona, Louisiana and Maine in less than three months. The company recently announced plans to expand into Phoenix and Florida.
