TUCSON, Ariz., April 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tucson-based Sinfonía HealthCare Corporation today announced that its Assurance Health and Wellness Division has acquired Yuma based Arizona Counseling & Treatment Services, commonly called ACTS. ACTS provides mental and physical healthcare services to over 4,500 clients across all of Southern Arizona.

Assurance Health & Wellness, located near Park and Ajo in Tucson, serves approximately 2,000 clients in Arizona’s first fully integrated clinic, combining primary care with behavioral health treatment. Founded in 2013 by local healthcare pioneer, Fletcher McCusker, the founder of Providence Service Corporation in 1997, Sinfonía opened Arizona’s first integrated clinics in Tucson and Phoenix, designed to combine physicians, psychiatrists and programs such as wellness, nutrition, pharmacy, substance abuse treatment, dental and counseling under one roof.

Combining ACTS with Assurance Health & Wellness will add service locations in Arizona City, Benson, Bisbee, Clifton, Coolidge, Maricopa, Parker, Quartzsite, Safford, Sierra Vista, San Luis, Wellton, Wilcox, and Yuma, as well as Phoenix and Tucson, making Assurance one of the largest providers in Arizona.

“We are committed to improving Arizona’s health and wellness, especially for challenged populations,” said Fletcher J. McCusker, “and we are very excited to partner with David Waples and the team from ACTS.” David Waples added, “Arizona Counseling & Treatment Services is pleased to be joining such a fine organization. It was exciting to find an organization with a very similar vision to ACTS. We believe that this merger and partnership will bring additional services to the clients we serve and will increase the health and wellness of our communities.”

Launched in Tucson in 2013, Sinfonía HealthCare now provides mental health services in Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, Maine, New Hampshire and Virginia.
