WellSpring Resources has announced its recent acceptance to join MHCA, a national alliance of organizations that provide behavioral health and related services.
MHCA is designed to strengthen members' competitive position, enhance their leadership capabilities and facilitate their strategic networking opportunities. Wellspring Resources is among a dozen behavioral health providers in Illinois to be included in MHCA’s network of entrepreneurial members.
Established in 1985, the nonprofit MHCA has 133 members in 32 states. It is headquartered in Tallahassee, Fla., and headed by CEO Dale E. Shreve. In welcoming WellSpring Resources to MHCA, Shreve commended its CEO Karen Sopronyi-Tompkins on her decision to participate and said there will be mutual benefit in the membership as “Ms. Sopronyi-Tompkins brings considerable talent and experience to the group.”
At the heart of MHCA's work is a belief that community behavioral health providers must rise to the challenges presented by a transforming health care 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 whose skills and personal/professional investment reflect the organization's commitment to excellence.
Through their MHCA membership, these organizations are encouraged to learn best practices from each other and are introduced to nationally recognized experts in health care delivery and business leadership. Members regularly examine their corporate vision and are given tools to anticipate challenges.
