The Arc of the Ozarks Acquires TheraCare
Expanding services to better serve community needs
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (June 20, 2022) – The Arc of the Ozarks, provider of disability services for nearly 60 years, has acquired TheraCare Outpatient Services providing speech, occupational, physical, and music therapy to children and families of the Ozarks. The move to acquire TheraCare first started with a conversation in the summer of 2021. Melanie Stinnett, MS, CCC-SLP, TheraCare founder was seeking a partner to increase therapy resources and options to reach more people in need in our community. Nearly a year later the partnership became official on June 1, 2022.
“It has always been my goal to increase access to therapy services while not sacrificing the quality of care we provide,” said Melanie Stinnett, TheraCare founder. “I believe that joining the team at The Arc of the Ozarks meets both of these goals.”
TheraCare partners with clients and families to provide therapy in a safe, caring environment with a focus on quality of life and confidence. The acquisition of TheraCare aligns with The Arc of the Ozarks’ mission to support individuals with disabilities in directing their own lives as valued members of the community. By acquiring TheraCare, The Arc of the Ozarks has increased its capacity to serve the needs of individuals and families in the Ozarks.
“We are excited to have TheraCare as a part of The Arc of the Ozarks team. Melanie and her staff are a valuable addition to the services provided to individuals and families in Southwest, Missouri. Working together we can meet even more therapy needs in our community,” said Mike Powers, President/CEO of The Arc of the Ozarks.
