Community Psychiatric Clinic and Sound Combine Organizations

SEATTLE, April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Community Psychiatric Clinic and Sound, two providers of mental health and addiction treatment services in King County for more than 50 years, announced today their intent to combine operations to form a new, larger provider under the Sound name and brand. Patrick Evans, Sound's President & CEO, will oversee the new organization in the same role.

The formation of a new Sound will be effective in early fall 2019.

Combining operations creates a larger, expanded healthcare organization that will have 18 locations and serve more than 26,000 people in the region with mental health, addiction treatment, supportive housing, vocational and many other services. These programs will serve a wide range of people, from Medicaid-eligible clients to individuals who have private insurance, and bring expanded service options to more people.

"We believe that this announcement will create better healthcare for the people we serve and will greatly benefit the community as a whole," said Doug Crandall, CEO of Community Psychiatric Clinic. "I am energized by what our two organizations will accomplish and look forward to what lies ahead."

Combining organizations allows for more significant economies of scale and sustainability, according to Evans.

"I am extremely excited about this new direction for Sound," he said. "The emerging organization will be in a more strategic position to adapt to the changes taking place in healthcare, where operational and clinical efficiencies are essential. By serving more clients with a broader continuum of healthcare services, throughout a wider geographic reach, Sound will have a more sizable impact on community health."

The organization is the only provider in King County to adopt Reaching Recovery, an evidence based model of care that improves client outcomes and ensures the appropriate level of care is delivered based on the client's need.

Both organizations are very similar in terms of the populations they serve, and are well-aligned in their mission, vision and values.
