A formal agreement was reached in March between the original parent company, Washington Health System, and Gateway Rehab. The two organizations have finalized the acquisition and are glad to announce the deal was completed on June 29. Under this agreement, all Greenbriar Treatment Center operations will be owned and managed by Gateway Rehab.
James Troup, Chief Executive Officer of Gateway Rehab, stated, “Our goal in brining Greenbriar services into Gateway Rehab’s treatment network is to continue to provide addiction treatment to the local members of our community while also managing costs. This development strongly fits into Gateway Rehab’s mission to help all those affected by addictive diseases to be healthy in body, mind and spirit.”
As the health care industry continues to evolve, providers and consumers are both seeking solutions that meet public demands for coordinated care at a reasonable cost. Both providers service similar areas across southwestern Pennsylvania so combining efforts rather than working as competitors creates an even stronger focus on the patients and families that need our help during their road to recovery.
Brook Ward, President and CEO of Washington Health System said, “We’re excited for the transition of the Greenbriar facilities and staff into Gateway Rehab’s operations and business. We’re confident Gateway Rehab can take the great work we’ve done for decades and help advance this service for the benefit of our communities.”
Gateway Rehab has committed to continue operating the residential treatment and outpatient programs in Greenbriar’s current service area including detox, short and long-term inpatient, halfway houses, and outpatient counseling.
Prior to this acquisition, the decision was made by Greenbriar leadership to end operation of its Squirrel Hill outpatient office. Also, effective immediately, staff and patients from this office have been offered to transition to Gateway Rehab’s Squirrel Hill outpatient office, located at 5818 Forbes Ave. All other Greenbriar locations will remain in operation as of today.
