ALTON – WellSpring Resources has announced its recent acceptance to join Mental Health Centers of America, a national alliance of select organizations that provide behavioral health and/or related services.
MHCA is designed to strengthen members’ competitive position, enhance their leadership capabilities and facilitate their strategic networking opportunities. Wellspring Resources is among just a dozen behavioral health providers in Illinois to be included in the network of entrepreneurial members.
Established in 1985, the non-profit agency now has 133 members in 32 states. It is headquartered in Tallahassee, Fla., and headed by CEO Dale E. Shreve.
MHCA says it focuses on a belief that community behavioral health providers must rise to the challenges presented by a transforming healthcare delivery system. Members recognize that major shifts are occurring in demographics, technology, politics, the economy and organizational frameworks. There is an increasing demand to contain cost, deliver more efficient and measurable services and engage employees in the organization’s commitment to excellence.
Member organizations are encouraged to learn best practices from each other and are introduced to nationally recognized experts in healthcare delivery and business leadership.
