Patients Help with Hurricane Harvey Recovery Efforts

Late August – early September 2017 marked the arrival of Hurricane Harvey on the south Texas coast. The city of Houston and many of our Mentis family members were severely impacted by this storm. People and organizations from across the country came to the aid of Texas. In fact, the patients of the Mentis Austin Day Program expressed the desire to help the people of Houston. Our therapists had also been voicing their desire to help, so they worked with our patients on this project without losing sight of why our patients are at the Austin Day Program. Some patients went shopping for items, allowing them to work on such skills as money management, scanning and memory. Other patients focused on fine motor group work and assembled care packages. Our patients then ventured out on a Community Outing with the therapists and delivered the packages to Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN).

This recent event is a good reminder that Mentis wants the best for our patients. When we work together as a team, we can achieve greatness even in difficult times and uncertainty.

Best wishes for our Mentis Houston family during this difficult time.

CORE Health Care is now part of the Mentis Neuro Health family!

For Immediate Release

Mentis Takes First Step in Planned Service Expansion with the Acquisition of CORE Health Care

Bellaire, Texas – May 2, 2016 – Mentis Neuro Health is pleased to announce the acquisition of CORE Health Care. This addition is a significant first step in the company’s plans to strategically expand beyond post-acute rehabilitation into other lines of neuro patient care. CORE’s combination of comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation, long-term care, day programs, outpatient rehabilitation and therapy services perfectly align with Mentis’ plan to broaden its service offering and improve the quality and sustainability of care it provides to those affected by acquired brain injury.

“We are excited to have the resources of CORE Health Care under the Mentis Neuro Health umbrella,” stated Jerome Mee, Chief Executive Officer for Mentis. “The expansion of our services is instrumental to our ability to better serve and care for patients with long-term needs. We want to enhance our expertise with those who share our commitment to delivering the highest quality of care possible. We found that in CORE.”

“The CORE team is thrilled to be part of the Mentis Neuro Health family,” noted Eric Makowski, former Co-owner and Chief Executive Officer of CORE Health Care and current Vice President of Advocacy Affairs and Business Development for Mentis. “Since its inception in 1983, CORE has been fueled by the desire to maximize each person’s recovery and independence. I am excited to be working side-by-side with a group that shares this commitment to quality care.”
Mentis’ service and geographic growth plan was the driving force behind the company’s decision to change its name from Mentis Neuro Rehabilitation to Mentis Neuro Health. The name change occurred in April 2016. The integration of the word “health” also reflects Mentis’ company-wide commitment to the life-long well-being of its patients and to positively impact their quality of life.

“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there currently are 5.3 million people living in the United States with a lifelong disability as a result of traumatic brain injury and another 1.1 million that are disabled due to stroke. Expanding our services so we can address the life-long needs of this population was extremely important to us,” noted Mr. Mee. “Once the decision to increase our capabilities was made, the word ‘rehabilitation’ by itself no longer fit the broader spectrum of care Mentis plans to provide.”

Effective immediately, CORE’s four treatment facilities in Dripping Springs, Texas and its outpatient and day program facility in Austin, Texas will now operate under the name Mentis Neuro Health. These additional facilities complement Mentis’ existing presence, totally 127 beds and more than 463 employees (includes all six facilities and corporate headquarters).

Mentis plans to continue to look for opportunities that support its growth strategy and is exploring both additional acquisitions and the development of new facilities.

“The addition of CORE is the first of what we hope is many strategic acquisitions that strengthen our ability to impact the quality of life of the patients we serve,” Mr. Mee added. “For us, it’s all about the patient at the end of the day and helping the maximum amount of patients possible is our ultimate goal.”
